Re: Weird nursing behavior at 4 months
4 months was when baby distraction started for us. Sights and sounds were suddenly clearer and louder and more interesting than nursing. The 'fun' nursing sessions were when my dd would latch and then whip her head to look somewhere w/out fully unlatching and do that like 20 times. Ah ouch ah ouch ah ouch. Oh and sometimes she'd get frustrated and cry. No magic solution just tried to nurse where it was quiet and calm. I'd stroke her forehead down her nose with my finger. And id take little breaks. Often if I just let her get fully distracted for a few min she'd want to return to focused nursing. And sometimes not. That phase gets replaced by another and another and another as months go on. All of them exasperating yet beautiful in a weird way.
