DD is breastfed (with the occasional bottle of EBM). Lately, she has been fussy on the breast. She'll feed for maybe a couple of minutes and then will arch off and won't reattach. When I try to guide her to reattach she'll continue to push away and grunt. I try switching sides and she will only sometimes attach to the other side. I then try switching her back to the first side, but no luck.
Lying down to feed her is the only time when we'll have some success and she'll eat for a good period of time.
I thought maybe it was my supply, but I still seem to have milk in there?
At first I thought it was just a phase and this is what the MACH nurse told me. But it's now lasted for about a month.
She's still getting all the wet nappies and gaining weight, but I am thinking that her irregular feeding is causing her to want to eat more at night (and more wake ups - which is okay, but if she could eat more during the day and sleep more at night that would be fantastic)
Has this happened to anyone before? Any ideas/tips on how to make it easier on both of us? I'm not interested in switching to formula - unless absolutely necessary. She was such a great feeder before.
Thanks for reading. Sorry for the essay
