I babysat a little one who is 2 months old a couple days ago. I noticed when giving her a bottle of expressed milk that she makes this weird clicking sound.
I asked her mom if that was typical for her and she said yes, she always clicks even when nursing.
I remember that my friend (her mom) had said that she had been clogged in one breast a few weeks ago and that she always felt very full.
She said baby nurses fine, which I don't doubt..but I tend to wonder if baby has a shallow latch? It looked like she did while eating from the bottle, but no matter how many times I readjusted the bottle, she kept clicking.
Could this cause problems for mama? My friend really wants to breastfeed for a while so I figured if the clicking is a problem, solving it sooner rather than later will help her immensely.
My friend had also said something about the Dr saying baby wasn't growing fast enough, but I changed 2 poos and 2 pees while babysitting for only 4 hours, so I'd say she's probably getting plenty. She's only 9ish pounds though..but I had a huge baby so I have nothing to compare it to.
Anyone know anything about clicking while nursing?
DD never did it, so im stumped!
If it helps any, she was using a breastflow bottle I believe.
hmmm i think you are right that it could be a shallow latch or incorrect latch with the clicking. can't hurt to have her see a LC or LLL just to double check. Most women start with an over supply the first month or two, so feeling really full is probably normal at this stage, but definitely worth getting a second pair of trained eyes on her nursing. as far as growth, all babies grow really differently and breastfed babies can grow slower than formula fed babies for sure.
