Getting mad while nursing

Ok so i'm stumped on what's wrong, serenity just turned 7 months, she does get a little baby food about 2-3 times a day but I never give her much and its always after nursing. but i've noticed over the past week she will start to nurse then let go and start crying, I re latch her she takes a couple sucks and lets go and cry's, she will do this a few times before I either give up and switch sides or she just gives up and keeps sucking but its making me want to cry not knowing why she is doing this. Sometimes I will try to express some and most of the time I will get a few streams that fly pretty far but sometimes I get noting at all. I nurse her on demand and sometimes even before she shows any cues, ill lay on the floor with her and just keep a boob out so she will take a few sucks then play then come back for a bit more lol other than that she nurses almost every 2 hours and at night she nurses every 2-3 hours. Plus I drink a lot of water and I take 6-9 fuenegreek pills a day. I just don't know what's happening and its hard to watch her do this and not know what's wrong. Any idea's?

My son started this. I tried new positions and it helped.

Teeth. 99.9% certainty. The misery starts long before you see or feel anything in the mouth. Any drooling? Gnawing of hands? OIf so, teething remedies before nursing.

It's probably Thrush, an infection in her mouth. Take her to the doctor to check and they'll give her something for it and all then goes back to normal

 Thats kinda what i was thinking but was also worried maybe supply. I have been thinking the past few days she may be teething, shes more craby, shes more clingy, trying to gnawing on anything and everything but she has not been drooling more than normal. It still just tears at my heart. Ive been trying those teething tablets but im afraid to give her what the reccomended dose so i just give her one maybe twice a day.

Most likely not... mama hasn't described any symptoms of thrush. :)

That sounds like how my 4 month old acts when he's over tired, but if it's happening often it seems it would be something more consistent like teething. Good luck
