We finally got past the extreme pain that was the first 5 weeks of nursing, but now we have new problems. My 8 week old son is VERY agitated when he is nursing. He kicks, swings his arms, arches his back, cries, pulls off the breast and then cries because he wants back on. I took him to the Dr. 2 weeks ago (not my usual pediatrician) and she mentioned reflux. He doesn't do this every time he nurses so I kind of dismissed it. It makes nursing him very challenging. He also doesn't seem to do it at particular times during the feed, for example it's not always at the beginning which might indicate an overactive let-down. Could it be reflux even though he doesn't do it all the time? Any other ideas of what could be causing him to do this? Solutions?
Also, he has always gotten very sweaty when he cries but the past week or so he has gotten really sweaty on his head and back when nursing. Is this normal?
