Re: 9.5 week old distracted/fussy at breast
I'm so glad you're coping so well with that evening cluster-feeding behavior. It's something that throws many moms for a complete loop!
The daytime behavior sounds like normal distractibility. By around 3 months, a lot of babies are really becoming alert to the world around them, and that can impact their nursing. They're feeding and suddenly it's "hey, what's that sound?" or "whoa, the cat just walked by!" If this is the case, it might help to take baby into a dark, quiet room when it's time to nurse her. It also might help to experiment with different positions, particularly reclined and side-lying. They can sometimes cut down on nipple pulling.
When you say that you want to enjoy your last month of breastfeeding, do you mean that you intend to stop nursing once you resume work? Or just that you want to enjoy your last month of being a full-time nursing mom, rather than splitting your time between baby and pump?
