I've been back to work (I'm a teacher) for a month and half now. My daughter is four months old. Obviously, she drinks pumped milk from a bottle while I'm gone during the day, but I breastfeed solely when I'm available. Within the three weeks I've started having trouble breastfeeding her. I know she's hungry, but when I try putting her to my breast, she arches away from me even before latching on. I put the pacifier in (it's the only thing that seems to calm her), then pop it out quickly and put her on my breast instead. She latches on and drinks a while....then after a few minutes pulls off and starts screaming. I repeat the cycle. Each time she drinks for a while and/or I burp her, but I have to rely on the pacifier to get her eat. I don't feel like she eats as well as she used to, but she's still thriving, according to my pediatrician. What's going on? Is it that she prefers the bottle over breast now? Is it that she is relying or confused by the pacifier? Or could she be ready for solid food (my pediatrician said I could start now, but I wanted to wait a while longer)? I really love breastfeeding her and feel it's the healthiest option. I'd rather hold off on solid food, if possible.
