Baby keeps pulling off

My nearly 4 month old keeps pulling off while breastfeeding. I'm not convinced she is finished as it is only after a few minutes. I keep putting her back on and she will have a couple more sucks then pull of again. It's unusual for her not to fall asleep feeding. Ca
Could she just be done? She's still sucking her hands afterwards.

Do you put her back to the same breast?

Could it be wind? I started having to wind ds during feeds at about 12 weeks. He was on for longer than a few minutes in the first instance though.

Also once ds discovered his hands to suck on his comfort suckling on me reduced.

Try both breasts and tried winding her.

She could just be done then smile or maybe just increasingly distractable. From about 4months I've had to do all sorts to feed - walking and jiggling whilst feeding, patting etc. Then that would stop working again. Now find that I tend to wait until I know she's hungrier or more tired and then she feeds for longer. She's now 7months.
