    Question 6 mth old fussing at breast

    Please help....

    My 6 month old has started for the past week or so fussing at the breast. He fusses throughout the feedings and on both sides. I can feel my milk let down and I know he is getting milk. I've tried burping him and that doesn't help either.

    What could it be????

    He's getting over a cold so I'm not sure if that is it or not.

    Help please!!!!

    Could be a number of things... first things that popped into my head wereteeth and distraction.

    He will eat for maybe 3 minutes on one side and push me away. I then have to like I'm doing now. I will get 4-7 oz combined when I pump.
