Just when I thought things were finally over the hill for us with bf another issue starts up... recently my lo (1 month) has been getting mad during her feedings. This is how a feeding will go:
Things start up normal and she nurses for about 4 or 5 minutes on the one side. I can hear her swallowing when I let down and she nurses perfectly. Then she starts grunting and pushes her face farther onto my breast. She then starts to fuss/cry and tries to pull away and off. I try to put her back on and she will suck and act fine for a few seconds, and then pull off and cry again.
So then I try one of two things.
1. I think she has to burp so I put her up on my shoulder and try and burp her. She screams and screams and usually doesn't burp and then falls asleep.
2. I think that she is not being patient on the first side and wants more. So I put her on the other side. She is happy and sucks for a few sucks and then pulls off and screams and so I try option 1.
This is very frustrating since she has been doing so well!! A lot of times when she falls asleep after I try and burp her, she spits up. So I don't know what I need to be doing!!
