ok so lately when Cambria eats all she keeps pulling off. She'll suck about 3-5 times and then pull off. Most of the time she's smileing when she pulls off so I dont know If It's cause she wants to play? But I know she's hungry cause she'll shove her hands in her mouth. Ill give her the boob back and she does the same thing. Ill even express milk to get her to keep sucking but that only give her a few more sucks. Is this normal? Will It go away?

My baby does that Im used to it. Shes distracted. She only "really eats" when we've gone a few hours without.

It's normal....my son does that too. At around 3 momths they are becoming aware of their surroundings and want to look around and take it all in. Unless she is really hungry she may be more interested in what's going on than your boob. Don't worry, if she's hungry she'll eat!
