My wee girl turned one today. For the past 2-3 weeks, she has increased her feeding during both the day and the night to almost every two hours. She did have a bug about 3 weeks ago, and went exclusive again for a couple of days but is back eating some food. She has become whiney and easily upset, very unlike her She cries hysterically if I take her off the boob, even to change sides and if I take her off to try and stop she goes mental, crying and screaming hysterically, I am 7 weeks pregnant and sometimes it is uncomfortable. I want to continue as long as I can. Here are my questions:
1) Is it a growth spurt and so unrelated to pregnancy?
2) If it is pregnancy related:
a) Could she be sensing something is changing and be reacting emotionally?
b) Could the pregnancy hormones be affecting my milk and so affecting her mood the same way it affects me?
