What is it?

Breastfeeding / Nursing Aversion & Agitation (BAA) is a phenomenon whereby breastfeeding / pumping mothers experience negative emotions triggered whilst breastfeeding, these include anger, rage, agitation and irritability. Women also struggle with an 'overwhelming urge to de-latch', and often a skin itching sensation.  BAA or 'aversion' can be experienced by any breastfeeding (or even pumping) person, at any stage of their feeding journey, and it varies in onset, severity and duration. There is so much that can be written about aversion, and this resource site has plenty of articles by different professionals and quotes from mothers.
