My DS is now 13 months old, and he's started a new thing - Whenever I'm BFing him, he'll take two sucks off one side, two sucks off the other, then switch back and forth, back and forth. Sometimes he'll sit up between switching. Sometimes he'll laugh or smile between sides. This will go on and on until I cut him off at about 45 minutes. (He used to be a 10-minute eater.) All feedings go like this now, unless he's half-asleep. Then he'll be still and serious.
Often times this is cute, and makes me laugh. And, first thing in the morning, when we've got nowhere to be, I'll let this go on. But, my question is...
WHAT IS HE DOING?
Is he bored? Playing a game? Uninterested? Unhappy with the amount that's coming out? Do I let him nurse like that? Or do I say, "I guess you're finished now," and take him off until he gets more "serious"?
