Distracted Baby...

My 4 month old doesn't focus when she eats anymore. She will latch on and let go continuously I don't know if it's just because she is not hungry or she is distracted...I have no idea! I can't feed her like this it is starting to drive me crazy. If I wait too long to feed her she gets so angry she won't eat, but if I feed her every three hours she just latches on then lets go a few seconds later. I turn off the TV and try to make it relaxing, I have tried soft music or cuddling with her before I feed her, nothing seems to work.... any ideas??

Wow! I didn't know that could happen so early!
Maybe you can find a lactation consultant?

 All good suggestions. Have you had any luck so far?

She seems to have gotten her gas back ...I have no idea why, so I am figuring that is the reason why she keeps turning her head back and forth while eating...I don't know what to do I haven't changed anything in my diet but she is still doing it.

my 3 week old moves his head alot when he's really hungry. I breastfeed but also pump and give him a bottle sometimes. Maybe try a bottle of breast milk?

That's funny...there is no way she will take a bottle
