Anyone else have an infant who won't or rarely nurses to sleep?

My DD loved to nurse, she would sit there forever and always nursed to sleep. But 4 months old DS is a whole other story. He gets a twitchy and flails and just very rarely ever seems to be really calm when he nurses. He does doze off while nursing during night feeding, but he always twiches and wakes back up. Also after his bath if he is really tired he just screams at my breast until get bounce him and get him calm. UGH!
And in the day he nurses pretty calmly but then pulls off and goes back on and pulls of and on again, over and over.

I sort of miss the snuggle time during a calm nursing session...it is just so different this time around.

Anyone else?

Sounds exactly like my 4-month old son.

Re: Anyone else have an infant who won't or rarely nurses to sleep?

I've only had the pull off and latch back on over and over happen when my dd is teething. After I put a little teething gel on she stops. I am actually having the opposite problem. My 18 month dd won't go to sleep with out nursing and wants to sleep latched on most of the night. I am the human pacifier!!!

My 3 month old DD doesn't pull off and on, but she doesn't fall asleep nursing like DS did. I actually like it...she sleeps much better at night because of it!
