Re: Baby shaking his head
Why? Babies sometimes pick up weird nursing quirks. They generally grow out of them; at just seven weeks your baby is young to make connections between his behavior and outcomes. Give him time to figure out whether or not the head shaking is necessary, and he'll discover that it isn't. Meanwhile, try some different nursing positions. Reclined positions are especially good because they use gravity to keep the baby on the breast.
