I was breastfeeding my 6 month old son and he kept pulling (well yanking I should really say-don't think he knows its attached to mommy!) off, looking around and then slamming back on. After a while of that he ate a little bit and then would again yank off and cry, slam back on and repeat. He was crying like he was frustrated and sucking like he was starving. I thought maybe he wasn't getting anymore so I warmed up some milk I had pumped this morning and tried to feed him, but he just chewed the nipple and didn't really eat. He was fine and happy then so I'm guessing he got enough to eat, but what on earth was the problem? Has anyone else experienced this?
