My LO has been doing well with nursing up until a week ago. He is currently 2 months old and will be 3 months on the 22nd. I had to start back work earlier than expected and he was bottled fed while I was at work, but I as able to nurse him when I got home. So on average he had about 2-3 bottles.
We took a family trip to California for 11 days and DH and I went on a 3 day trip. I was away from my LO for 3 days and he was exclusively bottle fed. When I returned he latched on immediately with no issues but very fussy at night. My letdown is very forceful and he gets fussy when it comes out too fast and he chokes.
He is now attending daycare and bottle feeds there, but nursed when I got home last night. However, he refuses to nurse and go to sleep and has become extremely fussy b/w the hours of 11pm-2am He also refused to nurse this morning before I took him to daycare. Not sure if he was still irritated from this morning. He didn't go to bed until 2am and woke up at 6am
Is this normal? I'm still pumping at work to build supply for daycare, but why is he refusing to nurse and has become uncontrollably fussy? I know that it's not nipple confusion because he nurses when he wants to
