    Default Early Morning Breast Refusal

    I posted this on another board, but I thought someone here might now about it.

    My ebf 12 week old boy has been refusing to eat from his late night feeding around 3-4 am until around 11 or 12 in the morning!! This has gone on for a few days and I'm starting to get very concerned. I try latching him on several times in the morning, he'll latch on and then come off and cry, but he acts hungry. I do believe I have OALD and a big supply, but he was managing with it, so I don't get it.

    I'd really like some advice, the one thing I'm considering is that he is teething--he's been a bit more fussy (which could be because he's hungry), drooling, eating his hand, etc. The rest of his feedings go okay, he eats 7 times per day for about 5-10 minutes on one boob only. I did get my teeth very early on.

    Thanks so much for the advice.

    Hi there,
    How have things been going the past few days?

    How is he doing with this "new schedule". Is he still having wet and dirty diapers?
