The last couple days It seems like Cambria doesn't want to eat. I used to feed her every 1 1/2 for 30 mins then I changed it to every 2 2/12 hours for an hour. I changed it cause she seem's to always be hungry and want more. She would be done before and pull off after the 30 min's but then 15 mins want to eat again. Well, she's been eating about 20 mins today and then pulling off. She more wants to play then eat. She'll just lay there a smile and laugh and not want to eat. She's had a few wet and dirty diaper's today but nothing like she used to. Is she not getting enough? I dont know what to do to get her to eat more, should I give her a bottle of BM?

Ah, the easily distracted phase. Yes, it's normal. She's out of the "4th trimester" now & realizing that there are other things in this world besides mommy & boobies. You may even find that minutes into a nusing session, she decides to pull off and look around the room, leaving your breasts spraying everywhere and your nipple exposed--this is especially fun when NIP! It's totally normal. As long as she is having at least 6 wet/dirty dipes a day, then she's fine. Looking at your siggy, she looks chubby, healthy, & thriving. No worries.

My LO does this too. Amy I wouldn't be concerned in the least as long as she is not screaming bloody murder at our breast!
