My son is 2 weeks old and until now breastfeeding has been going great.
But now we seem to be having trouble. My baby acts like he starbing but when I put him to me to feed he latches on for a split second, then lets off, lays there for a few minutes and then starts acting like he's starving again.
What could be the problem and how do I fix it?

I sometimes ran my pump for a few minutes before my son latched. When the milk was flowing I would latch him on. He had alto of trouble latching and would do the same thing. It helped when the milk was right there for him so he didn't give up.
