My baby was too upset to attach
My baby's twelve weeks old now and is usually breastfeeding well, but the other day he got too upset to attach. He'd made all the right head bobbing motions and was definitely looking for a feed but because I had to make him wait while I settled my 2 year old he got quite distraught and then wouldn't attach.
It has happened once before and it's really upsetting for me. In the end I had to go somewhere quiet and settle him down with a dummy just to get him to the point where he was even aware of my nipple being near his face.
Once we'd had a few minutes out he fed perfectly but I had really forgotten just how gut wrenching it is to see your baby in so much distress when you're offering them the thing they actually are wanting.
