Re: 2 Smiley 2 Nurse

That would be cute if it didn't end up being so frustrating for you both. Is she looking into your eyes when she pops off? I'd probably try to latch her right back onto that same side and just be "boring" about it and tell her "it's time to eat now. Momma will play with you afterwards." Or she may not be hungry enough if she stops and smiles. If she doesn't eat after 2-3 attempts in 5 minutes or so, I'd put the boob away, but NOT actively entertain her (but just let her play by herself w/ a few toys or a floor gym or something), and instead try to feed her again in half an hour or so.
