Gagging 6 month old

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For the past week everytime I put my ds up to my breast to feed he gags even before my nipple even enters his mouth. Has anyone else experienced this or know what's going on? Maybe I should also mention I am 1 day late on my period... I am one of those unlucky people who got their menstration back at 6 weeks post p.

Sounds like something has happened to make him uncomfortable at the breast--illness, or teething. Did something happen while he was nursing (even a loud noise) could make him have a weird association with nursing. Does he nurse eventually?

We found out he had ear infections so everytime I would lay him to the side it made him uncomfortable, he did nurse reluctantly until the ear infections went away then he was back to normal
