I have been exclusively breast feeding and doing so on demand for 7.5 weeks now for my son. This Monday was my first day back at work and he is in the daycare down stairs. I have been pumping at work at in the morning at home to supply him with his bottles throughout the day. At day care he eats 3.5 to 4 ounces every two hours or a little more if he is sleeping as i ask that they do not wake him.
Since Monday after we got home he has been fighting at my breast when i feed. He will be good for about 5 minutes and then he acts like he has lost the nipple. He will root around and grunt and push at my breast. I re latch him back on and then he go back off moments later. He then cries after like he is still hungry. However at night time, when he is sleepy and swaddled he feeds perfect. I do have an OALD but sometimes this doesn’t seem to bother him. I do notice he gets gassy when I breast feed him as opposed to feed him BM from bottle.
If he playing around or could there be a problem and that is why he is acting this way?
