Fussing at the breast - help please
Does anybody know why a 3 1/2 month old would suddenly have latch problems? He tries to latch on while pulling his head back so his nose is pointed outward and his upper lip can't keep the suction. It's painful and my nipples are starting to hurt from it. I'm wondering if he wants to be in a different position because he's getting bigger. I use the modified cradle hold. He's also drooling a lot lately! My first son didn't get teeth until he was six months and my daughter got teeth right after her first b-day. I know they can teethe this early but could that really be a reason for pulling off the breast and fussing even though I know he wants it?
