Kit Kat is now 13 months old and she finds other things more interesting while she nurses. I found it harder and harder to entice her back to "finish" until I realized that holding a toy worked like a charm. Before feeding time, I grab a small toy and hide it from her. When she becomes distracted (either from her big sissy, our dog or my husband) I show her the toy and she happily holds it while she latches back on and finishes.
You can also use a nursing necklace.... those work like a charm too!
Now, I have learned from mistakes........
1. Use SOFT toys (a big OUCH when she hit me with a plastic block)
2. Use small toys that can be held easily with small hands......the bigger the toy the harder it is to hold in one hand
3. Do not use toys that make sounds...... it creates a different distraction. Sounds like common sense. I know........ But this did not occur to me until after I gave her a toy that made crazy animal sounds!!!!
Do you have any tips on how to keep a nummie lover from being distracted?
