My son has had a very difficult time learning to breastfeed. He either fights me by screaming his head off before a feeding even begins or he'll unlatch after just a few minutes and scream. He has good days and bad days, but he is almost four weeks old now and should have the hang of breastfeeding by now. I feel like I need to make a decision soon about whether I'll stick with it. :( I just feel like it's not good for him to be putting up such a fight when it's time to eat.Answer Question

Also make sure you are burping him fully.
Hold him on your lap like this and bounce your knee a tiny bit as you pat his back. Also make sure you are streching him out fully while burping him, because an air bubble can get caught in him belly and it is very painful.
He can gulp air when he is crying , so he could have a gas bubble before he even starts nursing.
