Up until today DS has never flat out refused the breast. He is always happy to feed for at least a couple of minutes until there's nothing there and wants his bottle.
Ever since his feed this morning he has cried when I offer the breast to him. If I express first then offer, same deal. When I express into his mouth, there's definitely milk there (5-6 ******s if that makes sense), and he's more than happy to lick with his tounge at the milk and then he attaches, but as soon as he has a few sucks he cries, and eventually won't even suck.
I'm trying my hardest not to think too much into it and cry that he might be weaning, but I don't know what to do

It's a stage they go through. Look up breast refusal on the Australian breastfeeding association website, they can give you some tips, but basically just keep offering. It was awful when this happened to us, you feel so rejected.
