    Default fussiness at the breast

    My LO is 15 weeks old today. For the past couple of days, he's been really fussy when eating at the breast. He's been fussy like this before, but it seems to be happening more lately. Any idea of what it could be? At first I thought it was gas, so I stop his feeding and try burping, but it doesn't always work. I'm not concerned about low milk supply as I've got a pretty decent supply. I pump 2 times a day and yield 20-24 ounces total. He does get 3 bottles a day while I'm at work. I guess that's my biggest concern. I'm afraid he prefers the bottle over me. I already have him using slow flow nipples. I don't know what else to do. We thought he may be teething already. Could this be causing his fussiness? He really doesn't fuss at any other time.
    Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
