Hi ladies! My DS is now 16 weeks and I have been EBF since birth. It seems once I get him figured out, he changes everything up on me!! He is very efficient at the breast, but now all of a sudden, after about 8 minutes of eating or so, and it doesn't matter if I change breasts or not, he starts to nurse for about 5 seconds..then he pulls off, looks around, then nurses for 5 seconds pulls off, smiles, then nurses for 5 seconds and fidgets. After he pulls off and does any of the above, HE tries to latch on by himself and it's just this continuous cycle. Nursing, pulling off, relatching, I just don't know what to do. I was wondering if anyone else has had this kind of issue around 4 months of age. He is also playing with my shirt, rubbing my chest, so it seems he is distracted??
Also, since he is 4 months old, does it mean he doesn't need to nurse as often since he is getting more efficient? I just generally feed on demand, but it seems like he doesnt' want to eat as many times during the day.
Any help would be much appreciated!
