My normally very happy, very easy to soothe and super nursing baby is not so easy anymore.
Hes teething. And while during most of the day hes still pretty happy and easy but when it comes to feeding hes so difficult! Hes never been difficult to nurse :( He fusses and cries and turns his head away from me. I have to really really work with him to calm him down for a while before I can get him to eat and when he does its for a shorter time than his typical session I feel. Sometimes he will even latch and then just unlatch and start crying again. Tonight I tried to feed him and he seriously cried anytime I touched his mouth with my nipple.. he wouldnt eat until I had gotten him to sleep first! My boobs are feeling it too. Earlier I pulled my boob out to finally feed him and just from touching it I started spraying and got a whole ounce of just my boob spraying out milk on its own.
is there anything I can do? Is this because of teething or should I be looking for other issues? Its not a dairy thing cause I tried that and his poops have been normal and yellow (i had mentioned in another group that I thought they were green but my husband assures me they are not and compared two of his dipes and indeed they are yellow lol..)
