So far my little boy and I have loved breastfeeding, apart from a rocky start. However, of late he has started to be much more interested in food than breastmilk. He latches on for about 2 to 3 seconds and then lets go, and repeats that until I put him on the floor to play. I generally offer food about half way between 2 feeds, which has worked great so far, but he now just seems to hold out until it's meal time.
He has also started biting again (he has got his bottom two teeth), he could be teething again. He has always been extremely wriggly, but lately it's turning into aerobics, breast pinching and face (mine) smacking and scratching. It's getting so tiring and painful, I really want to give up, but know I can't, because he won't take the bottle. He has to get his nutrition somehow, I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm so frustrated.
