DS is 14 weeks EBF-on demand. For the last 4-5 days he is doing a lot of latch/ unlatch/ relatch and so on. Not really nursing well at all.Sometimes screaming and arching away from my breast. Will this effect my supply if it continues? Is this like a nursing strike? Should I pump a little to stimulate my nipples? Lastly is this normal?

Subbing! My daughter does this sometimes too. So far it doesn't seem to have affected my supply, but I'm curious as to why babies might do this.

teething maybe? my little guy has been doing this some this week (he's 16 weeks). I'm just making sure to offer frequently, and sometimes when he starts switching breasts helps.
