I am a exclusively pumping mum and recently got my 3.5 months DD back on the breasts. We have been doing so well, initially started with 1 feed a day and got to 2 feeds in a week and a bit. However when it was feeding time yesterday she refused to suckle, she just looked at my breasts and cried, eventually I gave up and gave her the bottle of ebm. I am not sure what went wrong yesterday, I was thinking would it be the new deodorant that I used? I tried again this morning and she was doing the same thing, nearly giving up... I finally got her back but there was a bit of force which I didn't need to do before as DD would happily take my breasts for comfort sucking or feeding. She may fuss for a few seconds when the let down hasn't happened but once milk is flowing she doesn't want to get off until she sleeps. I just haven't seen DD cries that much when she sees my breasts, she wouldn't even touch it so it is not like there is no milk, fast/slow let down problems. I am not sure what to do?

I do find that DD will fuss, latching/unlatching, throw the head back and whine till the flow comes, especially when she's very hungry. It could be that ur bub was super hungry and just beside herself? They don't connect like hungry boob wait oh ya milk... it's more like hungry... Whawhawhaaaa where's my MILK!!!
keep trying they go through phases she will probably get back into it soon :-)

Have you tried when she's sleepy? My son went through a really similar thing (except he won't take a bottle) so he wasn't getting any milk. He would feed overnight and early morning, but no other time. It was hell getting him to sleep at night!!
After a few days, he started having the odd feed and now he's back on it.
