my baby is 3 month old. Till now he was breastfeeding properly but now from the past few days when I breastfeed him he is so much distracted that he doesn't latch on my nipple. he keeps on running away. will feed only for 1- 2 mins and then moves away. when I try to turn his head towards my nipple he doesn't budge and then starts crying. ultimately I then express my milk and feed him through a spoon which he drinks but not directly from the nipple.. Please help.
