My son is almost a month and has been BFing fine. He latched from day 1 and the only issue has been sometimes falling asleep during feedings. Now, the past day or 2,he seems to forget how to suck! He will latch and eat for a few minutes, then just sort of hold my nipple in his mouth for a minute. Then he gets frustrated and shakes his head back and forth and cries.
I thought maybe he wasn't getting enough, so I pumped and gave him a bottle (he has taken bottles without a problem before) and he just kind of played with the bottle in his mouth- he wasn't actually drinking. I figured he must not be hungry, so I let it go. Next feeding, same thing. This morning he had a good feeding, but then after that it's been every time... just "drinks" for 1-3 minutes, then gets frustrated and just flails and screams.
Any ideas? we're both frustrated and he had weight issues week 1, so I'm nervous about him not eating enough as he is just back to his birth weight. help!
