My daughter is 3 1/2 mos old. I am breastfeeding during the day. I pump at work (work midnights) and she gets bottles overnight with daddy. I have a bedtime routine of a bath, dimly lit massage with lotion, mild interation, nursing to sleep. Most nights while nursing she begins to pull away from the breast and sqirm and then starts to cry. She then begins to nurse again and drifts to sleep. Then she starts again with the pulling away and crying. This continues in a cycle. U can tell she;s tired because she drifts to sleep, but she always has this cycle of crying. Some nights if I am persistant in nursing she'lll eventually stay asleep. But other nights she escaltates her crying to a full on tantrum! SHe is not gassy, not ill, not too hot or cold. I THINK she is just fighting going to sleep. Does his sound probable to anyone else??? Any ideas??
( Also, lately at most of her feedings, regardless of the time of day, she has begun to quirm and arch her bach while nursing. Pulling off the breast and latching on several times. Not really relaxing....any ideas why??)
Thanks for your Reply!
