<p>My 5-month-old is all of the sudden rejecting nursing.  She will only nurse for a short time on one side if it's been 3-4 hours since the last time she ate.  When I try to put her to the breast when she's cranky or appears hungry, she turns her head away from it, pushes back, and starts screaming. </p>

<p>I'm worried that she's not getting enough milk! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>She's only eating 1-2 times in the night as well.  So she might only nurse 6 times in a 24 hour period.</p>

<p>I never had to deal with this with my ODD, she would eat anytime you offered and then some.  What should I do?!? </p>

<p>Of course the day I post this she goes back to normal.  She's been chowing down all day long.  <span><img alt="whistling.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/whistling.gif"></span></p>
