Answer: Dear there are many reasons why your baby may have temporarily gone off feeding. Reasons include: She finds it hard to get a good mouthful of your breast. She may refuse your breast out of frustration. It can take weeks rather than days for you and your baby to learn how to latch on well. Even if she seems to have "got it", she may lose the knack. Your milk is flowing fast and strongly, and your baby is struggling to feed comfortably. Expressing some milk before starting a feed may help your baby to keep up with the flow, if you have a lot of milk. She has a cold, or a stuffy nose, making it hard for her to breathe while breastfeeding. Your milk supply has reduced. This may be because you're not breastfeeding as much as you should. She is teething. You could offer your baby frozen breastmilk cubes to suck and gnaw through a clean muslin. This may help to numb her gums before a feed. So these are just phase and keep breastfeeding your baby and baby will start latching again..
