When feeding DD sometimes she pulls off, but I know from experience that it doesn't always mean she is done so I try and put her back on again but when I do she shakes her head from side to side though still opens her mouth to latch on. She also sometimes shakes her head and/or pulls away with my nipple in her mouth (ouch!). I can't decipher whether these mean she is done, as often I'll put her down and 20 mins later she will want more! She is 6 weeks btw. Any experience with these cues anyone?
Ooh, and just to add, recently she has started occasionally making a high pitched screech, short and sharp while she is feeding, sounds like she is really upset about something, but it's only fleeting. Can't tell why she does it...
Could it be too much or too little milk?? Sometimes my ds pulls off if my let down is fast, but is still hungry, just trying to manage the flow. But he also squeaks if I put him on the wrong side/empty boob when he's really hungry, because he's used to a fast flow satisfying him iyswim!?
Also, high pitched scream usually means pain. Could it be wind or tummy ache when feeding? Taking in air?
