He could be teething... or just becoming even faster at nursing. If it's only been a couple of days I wouldn't worry yet. Just keep offering frequently and keep an eye on his wet diaper count to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

previously he used drink for at least 7 to 10 minutes, but for couple of days he is refusing to take my breast or even if he takes its only few minutes. so i'm really worried...
