Hi, my baby is 3 months and two weeks old. A few days ago she started crying every time I try to feed her. I don't know what to do. I need advise !!!

It's possible she's beginning to feel some teeth start developing. Doesn't mean one will poke through tomorrow.. It could also be she's coming down with some sort of cold????



Is she nursing at all? Have you tried changing positions?



Here's a link to KellyMom's site about nursing strikes. You might find something helpful there.

And: kind of as a side note here....

One of my two girls just HAS to have her outside time every single day. Rain, shine, snow, hot... doesn't matter.... she NEEDS the fresh air. My other daughter enjoys the outside too, and fresh air can do wonders for her too, but the one.... she's just not right if she doesn't get outside for a while each day. With it getting colder, I have to make myself bundle up both girls and myself so we can go out and play for a while. And when she was a baby (she's now 4 1/2) there were times during the winter that my husband would come home from work and find me and the baby all bundled up and walking circles around the driveway. He'd ask what I was doing... and I'd tell him it's the only thing that's keeping her calm. Once she got her outside time, she'd play inside better, nurse better, sleep better, etc.

Is your baby arching her back and fussing when your milk lets down? If so it could be you have an over supply of milk. Google breastfeeding and oversupply. There is a lot of information out there on how to fix this. I had this problem. It made nursing my son very hard for a little while but if this is what is going on with you it does get better - don't give up! What helped me the most was nursing him from the same side for two or three feedings before switching to the other side for the next two or three.
