  • I've breastfed all 5 of mine. I wouldn't classify any of them as "fussy" although my first was definitely a harder to console child (found out when he was 3 that he has autism), but people have always talked about what "good" babies they were when I left them at the church nursery, with a sitter, etc.

  • My 6 month old is breastfed, and she's a very happy baby. She gets fussy when she's tired, and that's it. She didn't even go through the "fussy" phase that most newborns go through around 6 weeks.

  • Some babies are fussy even if they are breastfed. They would be even worse if they were artificially fed. With breastfeeding you are giving them the food that is most easy on their digestive system. You are giving them calming hormones, You are giving them the closeness.


    We don't really know why some babies are so fussy. My grandson was a very, very fussy baby until he walked at 9 mo. Then he was much better. It was as if he needed to be able to get around on his own, to get past that developmental milestone. He never really crawled.

  • I breastfed. My daughter wasn't fussy, but she had colic from hell!! It started at four weeks, and lasted almost three months. It made going back to work so much easier!!

  • I breastfed and my children generally haven't been fussy babies. However, some things I ate definitely made them a little fussy, so when I figured out what it was, I stopped eating it for a time. With my son, I couldn't have raw onions or brocolli. With my daughter, it was tomatoes.

  • I breastfed mine and had two very fussy ones and two easy- going ones. I think my first born would have done great if I had cut milk out of my diet. Live and learn :)

  • my first was not fussy at all, my second was terrible fussy and younges two were some where kind of in the middle. I think it just depends more on the baby than on the fact that they are breast fed or not.
