Baby bobbing on and off!


As per the title, when I feed my LO, she constantly bobs on and off my breast!

She first started after we'd given a bottle of EBM and as my let-down can sometimes be a bit slow, I though maybe she was just impatient. But, even when the milk's flowing she still does it. She'll have a quick look round or a quick suck on her fist before looking back to the boob.

Any ideas as to why she's doing this and what I can do? It's super annoying..

no idea I'm afraid, but my LO does it too so just to let you know you are not alone! It makes me worried about breastfeeding in public (managed it in the back of the car so far, thats it!).

I know! I haven't breastfed in public since it started.. Here's hoping they'll grow out of it..?

I think its just their age,they are getting nosy and dont want to miss out on anything while feeding!My son just started this the last week,I still feed in public,just keep a blanket or something handy then if they come off you can keep your boob covered while they have a look around lol

they are becoming more aware of the world around them and being nosey its normal, try feeding in a quiet room currently my LO is still doing this if we are out and about ive had to resort to using BF rooms or a cover to keep him focused rather than lookin all over the place all the time, its annoying with 2 ive had to resort to putting ds1 in the other room in front of a dvd so we can get a good feed done

same thing is happening with us! He only does it towards the end and he gives me the biggest smiles while he is doing it. Does everyone else's LO pull on the nipple while they do it?! My baby yanks on my boob trying to look around and eat at the same time.

My LO has just started doing this as well, particulary when she just starts feeding which generally means that she gets milk squirted in her face!!

My LO has always done this. Just his personality as best I can tell. He did the same thing on my sister, so it's not a letdown or supply issue.
