A local mom on fb posted about this looking for help and I feel awful for her. Wondering if any one here has dealt with or heard of this and how was it fixed? I'm finding stuff online about breast aversion but nothing about skin to skin aversion! It seems so weird...

She cries being held in a cradle position, if she's near her mother's bare breast and at skin to skin contact. Just freaks the f out :( She's been pumping and bottle feeding but she would really like to be able to cuddle and/or breastfeed

DD cried when we cradled her. She didn't have a skin to skin problem but definitely preferred to be held sitting up, even as a newborn. She liked being able to see what was going on around her and also liked to lean on my chest sitting up and take naps.
