i breast feed my four month old and he has been doing GREAT! until recently when he has started to pull away from me while he is eating. before that usually meant he needed to burp, but now he is almost constantly pulling away. he eats for a minute, pulls away, hurries back, eats, pulls away. almost everytime i feed. is it something i am doing differently? how can i help him just eat? what should i do?

is he coming down with a cold? many times if they are coming down with something that affects their sinuses they have to pull back to breathe. Also he could be distracted I know my little ones would pull away look around and then feed again, maybe try to find a quiet place to feed where there is no tv or other people running around. 4 months is the age where they start to really take notice in everything around them and are easily distracted.
