Re: Fussy & Cries at breast
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby and on making it through the first 11 weeks!
Some questions for you:
- How has your baby's weight gain been?
- What do your baby's poops look like?
- Has baby recently been sick (e.g. cold, ear infection), or been checked for an ear infection?
- How would you rate your milk supply? Is it quite abundant, do you feel full pretty often? Has there been a recent change in the amount of milk you're making?
If weight gain is fine, poops are generally normal, and the baby doesn't have any illness, my guess is that your baby has simply picked up some very annoying nursing quirks. Quirks are common at this age, and in general the best thing to do is to simply power through them. Most babies will not starve themselves- you just have to wait for them to be hungry enough to nurse in their less favored position or whatever. But that's just a guess!
