I am nursing my 7 week old son, for the past week he latches on good, nurses for a few min, and then starts grunting and kicking (I think he is trying to poop). I try to get him to latch on again, but he resists and then he cries..... after a little while of crying he will try to latch on again and then it starts over again. Ive also noticed that he isnt eating enough because his feedings are shorter due to his behavior and I am constantly engorged. what is going on??? It is so bizzare...
I have given up asking my pediatrician because he will not give me answers, all he does is tell me "its normal, it will pass". I do not like him, but I have Kaiser and im stuck with him until Nov when I can change insurance. What might be causing my baby to resist it and get like that while he is nursing??
