I'll usually fight with her for a few minutes - switch sides a couple times then give up and attempt to enertain her. Then she'll keep doing it for several hours or what would be 2-3 feedings, until she gets upset cuz she's so hungry and then I have a hard time feeding her cuz she's screaming! What do I do?????
This was sooooo my DD at the same age! However, I was very fortunate in that she was sleeping through the night (10 hours!), so, although, she was distracted, she was also hungry enough to eat. I had more soaking-shirt problems!! It made me sad not to watch her eat, but since I was so distracting to her I started reading while she was nursing. The less eye contact, the better for us.
