3 Month Old Grabs the Breast and Squeezes

Question:

My 3 month old will grab my areola and scratch and squeeze while nursing. Normal?

Answer:

Lorelei, This is completely normal. Babies will often grab or massage the breast while feeding to help move milk down towards the nipple. 

Kindest Regards,
