We've had an awful day here today. My almost 4-month old daughter has been fussing almost all day. Everytime I've offered to nurse, she screams, arches her back and cries. She hasn't nursed to sleep like she usually does - she's refused nursing and I've had to rock her to sleep for naps. She's dreamfed during naps, so she's gotten some milk in. She's also been fussy between feedings - inconsolable at times, mildly fussy the rest of the day. If she's like this again tomorrow, I guess I should take her in to have her ears checked? She doesn't have thrush or anything obvious in her mouth - although she's chewing her hands and drooling a bunch, but that's been going on for weeks.
Just venting. Long long day. It's hard on a mama's feelings when just being moved into nursing position causes baby to scream and arch away.
