Getting Frustrated... Wild Nurser

I DD is 10 months old and was EBF to 6 months and now still EBM and some solids.

This issue started around 5 months but it's getting progressively worse. DD when she eats is wiggling and twisting all over. She pulls hair, flails her arm all over grabbing whatever she can, scratches me, pinches me, digs her toes into my arms... just wild.

I've tried telling her gentle and all that but it doesn't seem to make a difference. If I take her off and put her back on she just starts up again.

Lately she is all over the place so much that I don't think she is spending much time actually eating and thats starting to concern me. Her weight gain has slowed down but Ped said not to worry about it that he expects it around this age.

HELP!

I would recommend just keeping up with taking her off when she's wild, being consistent
