Baby Cries While Feeding


My baby is almost 5 weeks old. About a week and half ago she started getting fussy while breastfeeding. She will typically take the first breast fine, but once I switch to the other she goes just a minute before she starts crying. She cries, fusses, comes off the breast, cries and tries to re-latch. She will keep this going for awhile and never settle back into feeding for more than a minute. Previously she took both breast each feeding without issue.

I’ve tried burping her again once she starts crying, but that does seem to matter. Sometimes she pulls off and there is milk everywhere, other times not so I don’t think it is a supply or let down issue.

Anyone else have a similar experience? Any advice?
