dd had some occasional reflux when she was tiny new but we didn't worry about it as she is a giantfatty healthy strapping lass. She's been a good feeder though we are now in the distractable stage (sigh).
The past couple of days though she's been fussy at the breast and clamped on pulling my nipple out as far as it will go . Wtf is that all about? She's done it hard enough to give me a blocked duct and doesn't seem too heartbroken if I put myself away (though she does bawl her eyes out if I yelp).
Today she's been v fussy, acting like she's hungry but preferring her finger , sucking, whining, sucking, pulling off, sucking, twisting (like she's got wind, but she hasn't), sucking, smiling at me, and basically not feeding all afternoon. Finally at bedtime she had a proper feed and dozed off. I put her over my shoulder and she let out a giant belch, then settled down to sleep in my arms. ds kicking off so I go in to see him; dd's eyes open and she does a massive refluxy vom all over the shop. Could it be the Thai curry I had for lunch yesterday? (I know my mother will blame this!) Then, bless her, she went straight back to sleep, barely even opened her eyes when I changed her.
Clues? I'm too tired and stupid to put any pieces togehter myself
hi my ds is 18 weeks today, and we have had very similar problems.
Last week he clamped on my nipple and pulled it rightn back, then laughed
he also has very snotty nose, generally grumpy and red hot cheek so I am thinking it is teething and because he is so stuffy he is finding it hard to breathe whilst feeding, so he pulls off and on taking my nipple with him
