Hi!! I was hoping someone could answer this question for me. My husband and I are very curious. I have been breastfeeding my daughter since day 1. I also pump and bottle feed occasionally. I have 2 other children and sometimes it's just not possible to sit down and nurse her. Anyway. Yesterday was a very busy day and I was only able to nurse my daughter in the morning, then I pumped and bottle fed the rest of the day. At around 2 p.m. she started to get very cranky and kept acting like she was hungry,she would root like crazy on anything, so my husband kept making her bottles. She would eat 1 or 2 ounces and that was it, but she kept acting fussy. When I got home I made dinner and the whole time she was fussy and would only nap for 20 minutes at a time. No amount of breastmilk in the bottle was enough. After dinner I took her to her room, she was crying the entire way, sat down and nursed her. As soon as I put her to my breast she got quiet and ate like a champ!! Now, my question is this......is it possible that she was going through withdrawals? Do breastfed babies need their mothers' breast? Thanks so much!
