Breastfeeding my 5 month old daughter has become increasingly difficult. We've been going along just fine until the past few weeks. Usually during the day she nurses fine, but in the evenings, especially if she's tired, she'll try to nurse and it seems like she gets frustrated after 10 seconds and pulls away, crying. This is especially true if we've had a busy day or the schedule is off. Finally, we end up giving her a bottle of breastmilk if nursing won't work, but we are hoping to keep that from becoming a habit. Is she just tired, and doesn't want to 'work' at the breast? Or is she preferring the bottle? We noticed she's starting to get some hints of teeth - could this be a product of teething?
Any ideas are appreciated! Thank you!
