I have gotten off to a great start BF my baby. Milk came in, baby is latching on well, gaining weight, lots of poopy/pee diapers. Problem is...she will latch on fine, start sucking, and then within a few minutes (sometimes sooner) she will pull off, start flailing her arms and legs, and scream the loudest scream ever! It sounds and looks like she is in pain.
When she finally settles down, she gets all frantic and starts rooting for the nipple like she's starving. She'll then latch on again, only to have the same thing happen again in a minute or two. At first I suspected she was uncomfortable or that something was painful for her, but after checking her diaper, clothes, etc., I realized it is not problem. Then I thought maybe she has gas, but I have no way of knowing. I also tried swaddling her while BF, but that only makes her more upset.
The only thing that seems to make her stop immediately is when I hold her upright. But then she starts getting fussy and wants to suck again, so I put her bak on the breast, only to have the whole cycle repeat. This goes on for an hour sometimes, almost every times I nurse. I am getting really frustrated! Any ideas on what could be causing her to do this? Is she just a finicky, fussy baby? Help!
