I have some questions regarding my four-month-old EBF son. We've had quite a few problems in the past, so I'm not totally confident in breastfeeding, even though he's gaining weight just fine. We worked with a LC during month 2 to help with an oversupply/overactive letdown that led to a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance.
Anyway, his eating habits have changed all of a sudden. He doesn't eat for nearly as long as he used to--sometimes only about 5 minutes on the breast after about 3 hours (his normal interval). I'm not sure if this is normal--when he did this before, it led to the imbalance, which is why I'm curious. Also, could he be letting me know I should extend the interval? He does often seem fussy around that 3 hour mark, however.
Also, he is really distractable, so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it. He's distracted by everything--me, the ceiling fan, my husband. I'm not really sure what to do about that either. We nurse in side-lying position since that helped so much when we were working on my oversupply, so it's hard to nurse in a different room in my house other than my bedroom.
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions regarding 4-month-old eating habits!
