My 4 week old dd2 has suddenly stopped feeding properly. She had a brilliant latch from day one but since last night has fussed through every feed. wriggling arond and spitting out more than she drinks. Don't think it's wnd.
I'm sure she's hungry cos not sleeping for more than 20p mins when usually has 2 hours or more. Am I worrying over nothing?

firstly congratulations on your new arrival.

My 5 week old ds does this and I think it is cos of the heat, could that be the reason?

Really does soun like wind to me - DS is like this on and off. He wriggles around and squirms about most when I cannot get the wind back up - some days he just seems to be a lot more prone to it than usual - this started at about 3-4 weeks. My DD2 was the same.

Thanks. I did wonder if it was the heat. I will put a bit more effort into winding too and see if that helps.

this should help you figure out the problem.
