What is going on?!

Last night and this morning, my LO has been going from nursing okay to crying when I try. Last night, when trying to nurse him before bed (like we do every single night), I had to walk around with him for 10-20 mins before I could calm him down to eat. Mind you, he had just nursed less than an hour before this. This morning, he nursed on one side and stopped, so I burped him. He didn't seem hungry still so I cuddled with him a bit till I noticed he was making hungry face, so I tried offering him the other side, but nope, water works again. I had to walk around to calm him. Now he's sitting content in his swing. I don't know what this is. He is tired, I know that and he can't always fall asleep at the breast (yeah, btw, he's 2 months old tomorrow and he fights falling asleep while nursing, new one for me), but he fights nursing and sleeping and I just don't know what to do with him or where this behavior came from.

Glad to know I'm not alone on this, lol. I think I just worry that I'm nursing him too much. He always seems to be hungry unless he's sleeping. Guess I should just keep doing what I'm doing, when he freaks out, take a break and calm him, try again later.

It's normal :)
He may just not be as hungry, or he could be teething which can be really painful for them to nurse.

Could he be teething so soon?

Absolutely! The pain of teething can start way before any visible signs. My dd started teething at 8 weeks old. Didn't sprout her first tooth until 14 months old!

At this age he's probly going through growth spurts & starting teething. Have you tried a paci. I use one just to calm my little one to sleep after nursing. She just turned 5 months & just sprouted a tooth. She started showing the signs of teething at 2 months (drooling, fussing & puting everything in her mouth).

So now my questions are how do I confirm he's teething and what do I do to make him feel better?
