    Default Does your LO do this?

    Hi Everyone,
    My LO is 6.5 MO. I recently started EBF after a long road of finally having to supplement. I'm wondering why she is almost always fussy at the breast. She will drink and then pull off crying after a bit, so I will switch sides and she'll do it again and so I'll keep alternating sides until she's satisfied. Sometimes it seems like it's b/c the flow slows down and sometimes it seems like it's b/c she gets distracted, pulls off and then worries that it's the end of the feeding. Confidence in my supply is my weak point, so I just want to see if this happens to anyone else. She has a decent diaper output anywhere between 4-6 wet diapers a day. Today she actually had about 8 wet diapers!

    my LO went through (and still does occasionally) phases where he would do this, I found this link that I think someone posted for me earlier in the year...

    For us it got real bad at around 4 months and then would come and go, with another very bad round between 6-8 months..... Hang in there, you are doing great!!

    My LO started doing this when he started teething. It was extremely frustrating! Just remember, it will pass.
    Stay at home mom to my 2 boys:
    R - born 4/20/08, nursed for 20 months
    G - born 8/6/11, EPd for 4 months, until he refused the bottle!
    Loving CDing this time around!

    My 4 month old LO does this and has done it for awhile, It worried me at first, but I think I have come to the conclusion (and read other posts) that t will past. Sometimes it is just that they want more of the let down. HAng in there.

    It's most likely quite normal it could be teething or it could be the 6 month growth spurt. Hang in there mama!
