My baby is 5 weeks old. He has been BFing well from birth, but the last week or so has developed an 'issue' that's very frustrating.
He latches on well, and feeds well through the letdown (my DD used to cry and sputter through letdown). He will usually feed well on one breast. Then I change and burp him and settle him down for the other breast. It's at that time he gets very agitated. He roots for the nipple while it's in his mouth. He will suck a few times, then sputter and cry and gulp air (it's really similar to how my DD acted when my milk let down) and sometimes will even scream. He acts hungry, but can't seem to eat. I burp him frequently to reduce the chance it's reflux due to gas buildup. Last night I could feed him on neither breast, so the whole feeding was a wash. Very frustrating at 4 am!
Thanks a ton,
