Want to breastfeed but need some help? Mumsnet's Breastfeeding pages are crammed with honest advice.
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
Hmm... Strange. Hopefully someone with more experience feeding toddlers will be along soon.
Could it be because he's got to the end of the feed?
DS1 (he's 5.9yo) told me recently that when he has milk for ages (ie a long feed) then it goes really, really sweet and makes his mouth sore and itchy.I can't imagine he means sore and itchy, but this is possibly the best he can do explanation wise.You know how sometimes your mouth can go very tingly when you eat something really sweet? I wonder if this is what ds1 means.Perhaps it's something similar for your ds, and of course when he goes back for the next time, your breast will have filled a bit and the milk be more watery. Or maybe it's not that at all!!
My 18 m.o. DS was suddenly doing something like this tonight. He'd come off, stick out his tongue in a 'yeurch' way, almost gag, swallow and go back on again. He kept doing it. He'd had about 3 loooong feeds from that breast in the previous half hour as he's got an injured arm, much more than he'd normally have, so maybe the flavour was just too concentrated for him.He didn't have a hair or bit of fluff in his mouth (although that was what the reaction looked like) as he behaves very predictably but differently when that happens.AFAIK I'm not pg, although it's not entirely beyond the bounds of possibility.
Apparently there has been a lot of Hand, foot and mouth going around and I did notice that DS had a few ulcers in his mouth near the end of last week.Could that be it, do you think?
Hmm, could be - I'll have a look in his mouth tomorrow.
Well, DS hasn't done it since I posted either. No sign of anything untoward in his mouth either.Very strange, isn't it, Lenin? And quite a coincidence that my DS happened to do it just after I'd read your thread.
My ds is 20mo and will suddenly pull off and ask for water, which is what he does if he eats something he doesn't like. No idea why though, just interesting.
Interesting.I wasted spent some time yesterday glancing through the archives on feeding a toddler on the LLL forum to see if I could see any similar threads. I went back through at least 5 years and couldn't see anything that looked similar.
