    Question what is this about??

    okay so for the last couple weeks my LO will be nursing and then pull off and not be breathing like she is drowning and then she gasps realy loud.. needless to say it scares the poo outta me every time she does it.. any ideas i was thinking it was due to OALD cuz seems like she does it just after LD starts??? am i right is it the OALD??? or something else???
    TIA

    Sure sounds like it to me. As my baby's gotten older he's been able to deal with it more...but sometimes it still catches him off-guard and he gasps or chokes a bit.

    my son used to do the same thing (he's 5 months) but can handle it now. sometimes he'll nurse, pull away, nurse, pull away...

    but it used to be him nursing and then all of a sudden letting go and gasping - almost choking. kind of scary at first! but he's a pro now!

    WAHM and exclusively breastfeeding my naturally born son since 9/25/07.
