I have a 6 month old who used to love breastfeeding. In fact, she ate almost every hour on the hour during the day. Suddenly, she's been popping off the breast after eating for a bit, and writhing and crying. Occasionally, she seems to have gas, but as she's always been a gassy kid, I don't know if that would be a new thing. I do have gas drops that I've been trying to give her, but that doesn't seem to help.
When she does this I can't get her back on the breast. She fusses and cries. We go do something else and then she will get hungry and eat again later, sometimes within 15-20 minutes. Unless she's really tired, like before nap time, she is like this all day long. This has been going on for a few days now.
Some possible factors: She's been eating a little bit of solids for three weeks now. She got her shots last Wednesday and this seemed to happen after the shots (they did give her a flu shot also). She just seemed to go through a 6 month growth spurt, eating like crazy, before this happened.
