Constantly grabbing my face...


...What do I do? Fin is almost 5 months and literally will NOT stop clawing at my face.

He's too young to understand commands etc.

It started about 6 weeks ago hen he started grabbing at things. I would be knelt over him talking to him and he would touch my face... I let him and would say what he was touching etc. I saw it as a good sensory type play.

Now as soon as I pick him up his hands go straight to my face and he really grabs things. He grabbed my lip so hard and pulled today that it made me cryout in pain... which made him jump and get upset.

He's really relentless with it, no matter how many times I move his hands away, thye just go straight back there... and I feel mean for saying this but it's doing my HEAD IN!! Lol!

Any advice greatly appreciated. I try and put him down if he keeps doing it, but he just gets upset and he's too young to understand why I'm doing it.

ETA - Sorry should have said... it's only me that he does this with. He doesn't try with anyone else

xx

Sorry, no advice, but my DS is the same. He especially likes cheeks and hair. I've tried the 'that hurts Mummy' and moving his hand away, but obviously he's too young to understand. I tend to just try giving him something else to hold like a toy or my phone sock, it sometimes works.

Aliyah does the same thing to me and others.
She grabs my cheeks when i smile now and it really hurts! She also gets my lip and twists it and digs her nails right into me :/
I say 'ouch' because i know she won't understand yet.
I dare wear any sparkling earings,she rips them straight out!x

Sorry, I don't have any advice, but Hana does this to me too, and no one else! And she's started pulling at my hair too, which is great fun. She pulled out several strands of hair while I was feeding her this morning. Ouch!

Arlo hasn't started grabbing my face yet but he loves a good yank on my hair. Between that and the post pregnancy hair loss, I now see why a lot of mums get short hair cuts after having a baby!
