    Default Frustrated Feeder

    Looking for advice with my 8mo. She was pulling her hair during BFs so I began to give a gentle head massage to deter her hands which worked. But now she's pulling her eyelashes. I try to block access but she gets frustrated with me. I've also tried a soft comforter to play with but she's not interested. Any idea why this is? Its only occurred in the last month & It's not every feed. TIA.

    My DD is almost 17 months and a few months ago started pulling her hair out while feeding and falling asleep to the point the hair at the front went down to stubble. It was just a comfort thing and she seems to have stopped pulling it out and just strokes it now and her hair has thickened up a lot. I did buy these mitten sleeves and these worked well at night when I couldn't stop her. This might be an option for you while feeding til she grows out of it?
