Thanks super, some really good information on that link.

Is it possible he's teething? If he's that age and has no teeth yet, I would have thought it might be a possibility.

Ds is now 6 months old, after a rocky start breast feeding was going great. Recently he has become hard to feed. Popping on and off the breast showering us both with milk, biting (no teeth yet thankfully) , and generally not feeding much/for long.

I know I have to trust him to feed when he is hungry but sometimes he won't feed properly untill 10am!

I think I am making it worse because we have ended up co sleeping and for some reason everytime I wake up I keep sticking my nipple in his mouth/ear/eye even if he is asleep. I don't know why. I think because he must have finished and unlatched my brain hasn't realised and so I half wake up and start harrassing him with my nipple!
