Anyone notice any difference in nursing when baby is overtired?

Does your baby nurse differently when she's overtired?
Does she ever refuse altogether if she's overtired?

Just curious...trying to figure out why my baby is refusing to nurse...

Sometimes when Kyla (my 2 year old) was younger and overtired, she would be really difficult to get latched because she was cranky....I would have to get some milk out and like shoot it into her mouth so she knew it was there...she was a difficult nurser from the beginning though, but she got better!!!

yes, my LO will fight it when she is over tired. I find if I rock her and Sush her until she is almost asleep, then she will latch on and nurse for a good long time while sleeping

Definately! When DD was younger and overtired she would latch, but would be so darn fidgety -- ie.. Kicking her legs, twisting her body, let go to cry and then seemed shocked that she wasn't latched. I too had to unlatch her and try to rock/sway/shush her to a point she was calm enough to nurse correctly again.
