As soon as you get the hang of nursing your baby, you will find that your baby will grow and evolve and throw other little hurdles into your path! Along with starting to grow teeth and bite, you baby will become increasingly aware of this big interesting world around her, and when she nurses, she might prefer to look at that world rather than to face inwards and look at mommy’s breast! Inconvenient!
When it comes to a baby who is distracted while breastfeeding, my best advice is to try to put her in a really boring environment! If you can, close yourself into your nursery or bedroom, even try diming the lights. I had to do this with all of my babies. I would not interpret the fact that your baby is distracted while nursing as your baby wanting to wean. I fought my way through this and did not give in, and all my babies kept nursing, so don’t cave!!
