So my baby was the one that did not let go of the breast, I always had to break suction and take him off. At about 3-3 1/2 months he started to become distracted. He would start to nurse but pull off (without breaking suction), then go back. Over and over again. Well,I thought this would be a phase. At five months he is still doing this. I can no longer feed in public because everyone would be seeing everything. He also doesn't feed that long. He may nurse for a total of 15 min... at the most! Sometimes only ten. He is gaining weight fine, so that isn't an issue. But I was wondering what everyone's experiences have been. Has this happened to you? Was it a phase? What are some other issues I could face in the months to come? Teething, starting solids, heavy babies, anything you can think of that changed how your baby nursed. Please share your stories, I am interested in hearing them!
