    Default Screaming/crying while on the breast

    My daughter has just started doing this. While bfing shed occasionally wimper or outright scream like she got stuck in the foot. The first time it happened I thought my duct cleared and the taste/texture of it upset her but she does it on my other breast too.

    I DO have an oald but that usually just causes her to jump back and choke but would it cause this too? She pulls back slightly bit continues suckling thru it then calms down.

    It's more disconcerting than when newborns cry in their sleep cuz of the Moro reflex.

    I've always had OALD and DD really wouldn't like it. I had to stop and catch my letdown into her burp cloth or something, then continue bfing. It could be that the flow is too fast for her and upsets her or causes her to swallow lots of air

    Does she seems gassy?
    What do her stools look like?
    Does she spit up, cough or choke right before screaming?

    She sputters if it's too much but not always. She's gassy sometimes, but not others. And her poops vary between yellow and green. She doesn't even cry allof the tome, just like once a day, no real pattern.

    Sounds quite normal to me then mama. It seems like your LO may just be getting upset at the flow, especially sine it's not a consistent everyday occurrence, doesn't seem to be in pain/discomfort, and settles back down.

    My LO does this when he gets too worked up beforehand. Sometimes it seems like he's letting off steam from getting frustrated about...life. Usually happens when he's overtired.
