My DD2, 19 days old, is breastfed. She is quite a wriggly baby, and latching on can take a good few minutes, with hands and arms flying everywhere.
Once she is on, she is still, has a good latch, and feeds well, but then after a 5/10 mins, she starts twisting her head, or pulling down on my nipple, while still attached. It really hurts, and I am breaking off the latch with my finger as soon as she does it, but why is she doing this, and can I prevent it?
I am wondering if she is getting windy mid feed? I've tried burping her, but she just gets upset, and starts rooting again. I am wondering if she is unable to distinguish stomach/wind pain from hunger? Any tips would be welcome.
