My 9-week old has recently begun sucking a few times, swallowing, then forcibly pulling off the nipple (ouch). He'll cry and fuss because the nipple isn't in his mouth, root for it, latch on, suck a few times and pull off again. He will do this over and over, usually after a few minutes into the breastfeeding session. I know I have plenty of milk in there, I can hand express some easily, and his nose isn't blocked. We haven't had any problems until now...bf has been wonderful.
I think he may do this because the milk flow slows down? Switching breasts or positions helps occasionally, but this is extremely frustrating to get him to eat enough, and my nipples have gotten sore. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
