Hi
My LO is now 14 weeks and since she was 5 weeks she has been fussy while latching not feeding. Latching can take up to 5 mins. Once she latches she feeds fine no pulling off or crying. Ive used Nipple shields since she was born and she only fussy more if I try to get her to latch without them. For the most part I've adjusted and practise patiences or use expressed milk to drip in her mouth while she pulls the milk down. She feeds every 2-3 hours for 10-20 mins one side and is healthy, good weight gain.

I've spoken with 2 lactation nurses and they say she's just an impatient little girl and wants the milk NOW! :) I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and does it ever pass?

Thanks J
