Dd is 8 weeks old. Bf has been going very well. Two days ago, she increased her nursing frequency - about every 2 hours during the day and every 4 through the night. Yesterday, she nursed normally throughout the day, maybe nursing longer than usual at several feedings. Around 8 I offered a feeding before she fell asleep (usually last feeding before bed). She was not interested. She woke at midnight, when she refused my left breast but accepted the right without complaint.
She woke again at 5:30. I offered my left side first, since it's a little fuller. She refused, crying and screaming. I eventually calmed her and offered the other side - same thing. I just held her skin to skin. She would calm and start to search, I'd offer and as soon as my breast was near her mouth, she'd start to cry again - a really sad, betrayed kind if cry, like I just wasn't doing what she needed.
I did give her a pacifier to help her settle. She doesn't like them for "casual" use but she does take them when she;s upset.
Background: She is offered about 2-3 bottles of expressed milk per week. She accepts these, so far without any confusion or complaint. I have no pain, redness, cracks, etc. so I don't think I have yeast (however, I did eay popcorn with brewer's yeast during the past couple of days). She has had what seems to be a mild sinus infection - a few instances over the past week of wiping or sucking green snot, but otherwise, she has not complained, had a fever, or showed difficulty breathing.
know it's only been one feeding like this so far, but it's just so unusual for her that I'm looking for answers. Help!
