My duaghter just turned a year i want to breast feed her for another year but for the past month she has wanted to feed constantly she will drink and 5 min later she will point at them agian and flip out wanting more. Is this just something she might be doing for attnetion now that i am back to work? or is it normal and maybe doing it because she is hungry cuz she is bigger now and need more food?

It is odd cuz she has a tantrum in public becasue she wants milk but its not possible to feed her right there any sugessions on what to do so i am not feeding all the time

She is craving your attention because she misses you. Just snuggle and love her as much as you can that way she feels like the time you have together is fulfilling. I feed my daughter anywhere, i dont care if it makes people uncomfortable. It is natural and society shouldnt make women feel bad about something this natural. Try giving her more fiberous carbs so her belly is fuller. sweetpotato is a good one, she might be going through a growth spurt as well so both the missing time with you and needing to eat more could be a factor.
