Okay so I have no idea what's up and I feel like all my posts start like that. My son is 3 1/2 months old and has been great pretty much in the BF department. I started work 3 weeks ago and things have been a little rough with a new routine etc. He is now getting bottles at DC and BF every other time. He has started acting like he has no interest in BF. He used to use me as a pacifier as well as eating like normal.
Well for about a week now he has really grown attached to sucking on his two fingers. He absolutely refuses to latch on any other time than when he is HUNGRY. I used caps because he won't even snack. At night he does fine and dream feeds about 4 times throughout the night. Today he has BF only 3 times and 10 min max each time (WAY LOW for him). He keeps sucking his darn fingers! He has had 3 wet diapers and 2 soiled ones today (it's currently 6:25pm). I'm concerned.
Could he get used to his fingers and not want to breast feed? Could it be something else? He is acting fine otherwise not crying, oh wait yes he is crying when I try to offer the breast in ANY position. Unless he is starving it seems he doesn't want to eat or anyting like he used to. Makes me sad.
