My Baby girl serenity will be 3 weeks on monday and Shes doing this new thing everytime i feed.

Ill be feeding her for a while maybe 20 almost 30 mins and she'll start pulling herself off my nipple and then opening her mouth searching for my nipple so i re-latch her and she pushes herself off me. so i stop and try burping her, she burps, the she starts kicking me in the stomach and trying to climb me all while searching for my nipple by my ear. and she starts tripping out with her tounge out so i try and re-latch her and she just fusses and licks my nipple puts it in her mouth and spits it out! its driving me crazyy!! :/

Welcome to the 3 week growth sput. This is the 1st test of your bond. If you don't eat her or toss her out a window then you bonded, lol. Her wanting to nurse forever and trying to see just how far she can pull your nipple all are signals for your body to change the milk up some. Good news is it doesn't last forever.

It's normal. When it really irritates you, stop nursing for a few minutes and then start again in a different position. That's what worked for me a year ago and what works for me now whenever my little guy is annoying me.

that's what my baby did. she didn't want boob anymore. it was frustrating trying to figure it out. but i had to introduce the pacifier. My baby refuses to use me as a pacifier. she doesn't know what to do with the milk that comes out and gets mad when she doesn't want anymore but still wants to suck. it also meant my baby was done and tired.

My daughter did the same exact thing and I couldn't stand it. I thought she was not eating enough. But its normal probably a growth spurt. She will get better soon. Just relax and follow her lead

it's very common for them to be extra fussy in the evening, too. Just ride it out. GL!

This. Do not give a pacifier yet. It is a growth spurt and your body needs to get the signal. Take short breaks when you feel like tossing her out the window. Do some skin to skin in the fussy period, sing to her, rock her, talk in gentle voice and let her use you as pacifier. She will learn to stop sucking if she doesn't want the milk. My DD used to bang her face against my boob around 5 weeks to make it stop. It was sooo funny.

Quoting amc103:
