My LO has been doing so well at BFing until a few days ago. Now she is slipping off her latch several times during a feed, clamping down where it's almost like a bite (of course, no teeth yet as she is only 10 weeks old), and pulling hard at the nipple and trying to stretch it out as far as she can. She basically turns her head toward me with my nipple still in her mouth. She does this slightly less while nursing lying down, but still... I try to keep the pressure on her upper back to prevent her from pulling but she really fights it. The bites are quick - she just seems to pull her tongue back, bite down, and then start nursing again.
She has been learning new things lately... her fingers (and sometimes her whole fist) are in her mouth a lot of the time and she is much more vocal. No sign of a cold, but her sleep habits have been kind of out of whack (i.e. sleeping all night one day, then not falling asleep until 6 a.m. the next). Poops and wets are normal, and she still eats 7-8x/day. She gets a bottle two or three times a week and a pacifier for 1 or 2 of her naps/day.
Any thoughts? Could it just be her getting distracted? It's too early for teething, right?
