Backarching and fussing while breastfeeding | Possums for Mothers and Babies

Backarching and fussing while breastfeeding

 

What does it mean when your baby is backarching and fussing while breastfeeding? Dr Pamela Douglas explains why this behaviour is not usually a sign of medical problems such as 'reflux' or oral ties. She explains that fit and hold problems are the most common cause of backarching, breast refusal, difficulty latching, and fussiness during breastfeeding.
