I'm an exclusive pumper at the moment but LO and I are working on breastfeeding. Per our pedi's and LC's recommendation, we try nursing 2x a day and I give her bottles (of breastmilk) the rest of the time.
These past couple of days, LO has been doing this thing where she latches but keeps pulling her head back and off of her latch, then does it again. She works herself up and gets mad and too frantic to nurse, so when she does that I end up giving her a bottle. She pulls off too vigorously for me to try to hold her head in place - she just won't stay on. I mentioned it to the LC but all she said was all babies do that. LO has been doing it a lot lately and we really haven't been able to nurse at all. Any suggestions for when she does that? I've tried giving her the bottle for a few minutes then putting her back to the breast but that doesn't really seem to help.
She has a great latch when she stays on, and she's getting stronger and seems to be able to suck a lot. But this pulling off thing is tough, and it seems like once she starts doing it the session is shot.
