Sophia has developed the habit of rubbing her left eye while nursing, and I haven't bothered to stop her. When I try to, she always wants to get her hand free, so I just let her get it out of her system. Today's event, though, convinced me to nip it in the bud.

Soph was nursing as usual, and the eye rubbing was going on longer than usual. Dedicated mother that I am, I was reading while she ate, and didn't think anything of it. She finally finished up, and I put my book down and went to sit her up. Augh!!!

Sophia had managed to turn her whole eyelid inside out, far more than the gentleman in the picture. All I could see was the white of her eye, below her iris. Freaky!

Funniest thing was that she didn't seem to care. She was just as happy as usual while I tried to get her eyelid turned back. I had to try a few times, as it was really stuck.

Later she was nursing and tried to rub her eye, I did grab that hand, and said a firm "No!" and she didn't attempt it again. We'll see how long that lasts.
