Ok so normally just as sophie is coming to the end of feeding she will start pulling my nipple and turning her head down with my nipple still in her mouth so that it pulls. she will then come off and finish her feed, i try to put her back on and she refuses it so this is how our feeds end.
well just recently as well as pulling on it she has sort of started biting down on it as well and it hurts lol.
when we went to be weighed on tuesday her weight was just below the line that she has always been above
she never seems hungry or crys to be fed
Just out of interest last night when i was feeding her before bed she finished feeding and wouldnt go back on as she does so i turnt over and put the other breast to her and she started feeding off that one??
have i been doing something wrong? is she not getting enough from 1 breast anymore?
My little girl does this too (minus the biting!) - sometimes it's because of wind, sometimes i think she gets frustrated if milk has slowed right down so I change her over to the other breast and she feeds from that for a while - other times if i put her dummy in it settles her down!! I just try a combination of these things until she stops fidgeting
imogen went through a biting and pulling phase at around 3 months, dont know what was causing it as like you LO she comes off when she's done, is content and hardly ever crys for food. because she doesnt to it anymore im not sure if it was just a phase. and if she fed from 2 sides (hardly ever happens) id used the one i last fed from for the next feed.
I had to start feeding from both at about 3 months, he used to pull on it when he was getting impatient for milk to come, sort of like a calf does, so I'd know to switch him over. And then like everyone else I start him on the last one he fed from.
now he bites and rips because he's teething... so we're working on cutting out comfort sucking
