Toren does this to me all the time! I call it niplash (whiplash for the nips). It could be for any reason... gassy, trying to trigger another letdown, fighting sleep, playing, bored. Toren sometimes pops off, smiles at me or giggles then latches back on just so he can pop off again, little stinker. It sounds like Colt was hungry. I know around 6 weeks they do that a LOT to let your body know he's growing and therefore your body will know to produce more ounces during each feeding. It hurts at first (I'm used to it now so it doesn't bother me) but try to let him do it if you can handle the pain that way your "girls" know to produce more milk. I recommend drinking a bottle of water when he is doing that. Sometimes when my breasts are empty, baby is popping off and I drink a bottle of water, it is enough to trigger another letdown. Definitely don't feel bad about the formula!!! Little man was hungry and filling his belly made him happy and able to sleep. Hang in there xxx
