Re: 3.5 month old refusing to finish :(
as long as your baby is wetting 6-8 diapers a day
And as long as she is having bowel mov'ts that are plentiful, yellow, seedy and wet
And as long as she is gaining weight
and as long as she is nursing on average, at least 8-10 times over a 24 hour period
You are on track and doing fine.
My LO's only took one side per feeding.
She may need to comfort nurse and she is frustrated b/c she doesn't want a mouth full of milk.
With the bottle she has no choice b/c sucking even the bare minimum means getting milk...even if she does not need/want it.
Your baby can get everything she needs from nursing exclusively.
If you know she needs to be fed after the first 5 minutes of nursing but she pops off, you can try burping her and then putting her back on the first breast.
You may find she is more satisfied with only nursing from one side per feeding.
