    Default Grunting while nursing??

    My son is 8 months now. Recently (a week or so maybe) he grunts sometimes while he is nursing. He'll keep his latch but he'll stop nursing and he'll grunt (like he is trying to poop). But he never poops when he does it. Sometimes the grunt turns into a fuss, but it is mostly a grunt. Wonder what that means??

    I started to motherhood when my son first smiled at me, is my preferred method of transporting my son, was overwhelming at first but now enjoyable, and cloth diapering his & are my newest adventures!

    Do you think it's more of a communicative grunt? Around that age they start associating eating as being a social thing... They see people chatting it up while eating... What do you think?

    Hmmm maybe. He does get quick distracted now while nursing and looks away and then comes back to latch. Sometimes he'll start playing. But the grunting is more frustration. Wasn't sure what he was frustrated about. Now that I think about it not sure when during nursing he grunts... beginning middle or end. I'll have to pay attention to that.

    My son is also 8 months, and he does the same thing! I thought he was pooping too, but he's not. I'm not sure what it means, maybe they're just enjoying the nursing?

    Hmmm ... thanks! No worries right now I guess. I'll just keep watching to see if anything changes.

    Our boys are close in age and size I think. My son was about 20 lbs. at 6 months and born on 1/26
