My 3 week old is breast feeding for about 7 to 10 mins each feed. He usually goes from 1 to 3 hours between feeds and seems to be latched on well. My problem is during the day feeds he will latch on for about 10 mins and feed well. He will then come off the breast and get really upset. He seems to want to latch back on as he will fuss at the breast. I try to latch him back on but he either cant latch on or wont, He will cry and put his hands in his mouth and can be very unsettled. We could spend an hour fussing and then he might feed again for 5 mins and then settle. Nearly all the feeds only last for about 10 mins or less.
I have started to express and offer him a top up on this night feed which he will normally take (about 2oz). He will then settle for 2 to 3 hours.
I am not sure if he wants to feed longer during the day and just cant latch on after feeding for 10 mins or if he is just unsettled for another reason, Any suggestions or help?
