I'm new here and have gotten many answers to my breastfeeding questions by reading through the forum, but I've come across an issue that i can't figure out how to solve.
I have a 5 month old son and we've been through our share of nursing problems, and just when I think we've got it figured out, we have come upon another challenge. He is so, so, so easily distracted. Not at every meal, but probably more than half. He'll eat for about fifteen seconds, and then pull away while still latched on to look around the room...and this is at home where there's nothing going on! I can't imagine what he would do if we were out and about. Sometimes he does this through the entire meal and not only does it HURT, but it takes us forever to do a feeding (and sometimes a bunch of my milk will get wasted because he's pulling away and off with a mouthful of milk). He even does this when he's hungry, which is frustrating because after he does this like 10 or 15 times i'll put him down, but then he'll cry because he's still hungry. AHHHHH!
