I'm a third time mom and LLL leader but I still get stumped sometimes!
Not sure if anyone responded to this yet, but Seraphim has done this a few times. I believe it is all about being close... After having Seraphim the placenta was taking time to detach completely and hubby thought I was bleeding too much (it had been an hour and tried massaging and some breastfeeding, she latched right away but I was unable to move into a comfy position and handed her off to my mom against little Seraphim's wishes) and the paramedics were called, while getting me to sit on the chair to be taken down the steps it detached. I felt great but they insisted on taking me anyways. Anyways I was gone for about 3 hours and when I came home she fussed and was put to the breast and she just wanted to look at me. She did this the rest of the day (must've gotten filled up just before popping out
) Two days later I began to feel very out of sorts and was taken my paramedics to the hospital again found out I was anemic and my levels were 8.8... again I was away from her for about 3 or 4 hours and even though she was filled with formula when I got home, hearing my voice she got fussy again and once at the breast just watched me.
She knows she should be next to me and cuddled with me at the breast and I think sometimes she just longs to be close...
Anyways that's what I think (she hasn't done this since I've been strictly breastfeeding the past couple days).
