No clue sneha! Pihu rarely latches she is mostly bottle fed.. tagging Sonali Shivlani

Going thru same stage. Hehe

Sweetheart,Rehu does the same. So much distracted she is,even if i chew on something,she will leave the breast and look at me. What i do for a serious feed is dim the lights,no distraction at all,i cant even hold my phone these days,she looks at my eyes gazing somewhere else than her and leaves and start looking at the phone. So,no distraction,dim lights, and gentle rocking on my lap,thats how the feed gets completed. Otherwise she just munches on yar..plus she has teeth..ouch!! And she pulls the nipples so hard,sometimes i feel like scolding her not to do so! The moment i frown,she makes faces and smiles at me..
Feeding has become a chore. No more multitasking!

ritu singhal I tried dim light yaar but that doesnt worked for me... My messy hairs attract her n she latches a bit good stearing my hairs but i dont think that will work for more days😭

Hey,i remembered how i wore a top which had patterns on arms and she kept on gazing at it and latched,i guess,it kept her wandering brain busy with some sensory stimulation! Just try different things!

Hey you need to sit at place where ther is no disturbance... quite and calm and no distractions.. if possible cover ur baby face.. that helped me when my son was small... and yes this is just a phase it will pass as kids want their mom full attention

Richa Chowdhary i tried covering her; by dupatta while feeding but rather that concentrating on latch she spend her time to take off that dupatta or starts playing with that😢

Sneha going through the same phase.I avoid looking at her as she always unlatches, looks at my face and smiles.She keeps looking at me but I look away and turn her head towards my breast.

Oh man. This is all scary..

Akshaya Naresh doing the same thing. If i watch her feeding,she starts smiling.

When did all this started moms? I mean which week? So far my daughter is interested only in drinking and doesn't look at me.

It started a few weeks before becs.like 3 and 1/2 months I guess.I don't think all babies do this.Lets hope atarah will be a guddu always.

Hey sometimes the babies are in playful mood ...so try after that phase once again ...it's better to go to a secluded place then go and play some music ...

Rebecca Prakash 😊, it’s gonna start soon :) be prepared. All this starts when the visibility in the baby’s eyes improves post 3 months as till now it’s all hazy and they are unable to focus. Now as the vision enhances they are able to focus and concentrate on things better and get distracted easily
Sneha Khandait Deshmukh dear what worked for me was feeding in a dark room where he could not even see my face and singing lullabies to him

this is an amazing thread. so you've got awesome advice here sneha. i was thinking what if you had some soothing, meditative music in the background playing? might help both of u!

Great yaar so many answers on this question,my questions hardly gets 1 reply🤔
