Difficulty in latching

0 to 1 years

Hello mommies.. My soon to be turning 3 months lo has started to avoid latching at times while I bf him. Then starts crying excessively. Doesn't latch till I pacify him. Also at times he doesn't take my breast while side lying, just turns his head away. Again I have to pacify him and sit and make him feed. sitting for whole day and feeding him leaves me exhausted. Is this just a phase? Or he is learning to throw tantrums

hi S Sinha !is he on bottlefeed too?? if yes, he might do it due to nipple confusion. if he is just on breastfeed, please ensure that u maintain a gap of 2 to 2 and a half hrs between feeds. also please ensure he has burped after every feed by raising his head up by supporting from yr shoulders. , if baby hasnt burped please burp him howsoever long it takes.. here is a blog u would find useful!
