Hi, my baby is 2 months old now. Is on bf and FM both..from last few days..I have noticed, he demands for bf, however he latches for 5 mins, detaches himself from the nipple, and starts crying profusely, I have also checked if the milk supply is there, I just fail to understand why does he do that?

Breastfeeding Basics: How Much And When

Hi Resham, the article doesn't give a solution..

Annie the child decides to comfort himself... Also sometimes..they are just to sleepy and not hungry so they cry .. make sure your feeding with a good gap and also giving a burp after every feed. Just trying to adjust. Don't wrry.

What you're saying is absolutely correct..he used to comfort himself by latching and would remain like that for 1 hour, however now he latches only for a few mins and starts crying..

U must CHK for Ur flow and generally when they don't get the flow also they get tired n irritated.. u must express n try to feed once or twice also massage Ur breasts well. And include loads of water n jeera in ur diet.
