Re: Fussy/hungry at breast - LONG feedin
That sounds really frustrating! The first question I have is, how is the baby's diaper output and weight gain? Is she producing At least 4-5 sopping wet diapers per day? Is she pooping at least once a week? The second question I have is, what is happening when she unlatches and goes into her cuckoo routine? Do you ever see her cough, choke, gag, splutter or cough at around that time? Make a clicking or clucking noise? Do you see milk stream or squirt from the breast? The reason I ask is that some of the behavior you're observing can be the result of a fast letdown of milk, which could explain why she's easier to nurse at night, when you are probably nursing in a different position which may slow milk flow. But there are a lot of other possibilities, too, so I wouldn't say "fast letdown" right off the bat.
