So, all the sudden (the last few days or so), my DD is very fussy at the breast. She will nurse for 3-4 minutes and then become agitated: popping on and off, pushing her head into my breast and turning her face down, pushing against anything her feet can touch, etc. But then she immediately wants to latch back on. This can persist for awhile until she becomes frustrated and eventually begins to cry. Sometimes I can keep this at bay for a bit by switching breasts more frequently.
I have been worried about supply in the past since she has been a slower gainer, but I began taking Fenugreek not too long ago and my supply actually seems better than ever. I'm able to pump more than before, and she seems to be gaining well.
She did just get over a cold, but doesn't seem to have any other signs of an ear infection or anything like that. What could be causing this? Am I doing something wrong? She very rarely spits up and doesn't seem to be any more gassy than normal.
I've noticed she's also a lot more distractable while nursing, but would that contribute to the crying and fussing, too?
I hate to resort to giving her bottles, but I do want to be sure she is getting enough!
