hi all, my lo is exclusively breast-fed. but fr the past three days there is a little change in his behavior. he used to love to nurse now he just turns away. wen I express and give my milk with vati spoon he readily takes it. I feel really upset. can u help me on how to get him to nurse again? p.s. he does at night before sleeping the problem is during the day.

Hello shweta..
same thing hapnd with me..
sometyms babies behaviour change, so take tym and calmly try again n again..and everytym try to BF, if he dnt take feed thn oly express BM n give him...dnt give him everytime by expressing BM..he ll take tym, try n be patient..

Summer and sweat problem I guess. Clean your breast after feeding. And fan him while he is having feed...

hello Shweta....be clam n have patient. Roopashree Siddiredddy's said try that....

It is normal your little one is starting to be more interested in the outside world rather than what is happening at the breast. At night when he is sleepy and tired he wants comfort and hence will nurse better.
