This started happening last week. During our morning feeding session, my son wont suck as effectively as he used to. I thought he is sleepy, he will do it better when hungry and awake, but no, it has been like this since last 7 days. He sucks very slowly, takes a few long pauses (he is not doing anything then, but looking around and playing with the clothes I am wearing). He holds the nipple so lightly, I can pull it out with a little pressure. Our nursing session takes forever because he is getting so little out everytime..
Its not like he is not hungry, if I give him bottle of formula or expressed milk, he will drink some, although less then usual. It was not like that. When he used to nurse, it used to feel good, I could feel the breast getting empty, but not anymore. I have low supply from the start and him not sucking effectively is making it worse. Plus, physically I feel so frustated while nursing him just thinking about how good it used to be..
I wonder what's happening? I have not changed anything, he is healthy. The only thing I can think of is he is less interested in eating and more in playing since now he can crawl, stand up and walk with support. I hope this is just a phase..Wish there is someone in my situation who could help me ...
