Angry Baby While Nursing -- Desperate for Help

My daughter is 9 weeks old and exclusively breastfed. For about the past month any time she's tired she gets horribly angry while she nurses; she latches and unlatches repeatedly, kicks, scratches and beats on my chest. I know it's not a matter of low milk, I have a great supply. It's also not about being overly full because it starts almost immediately. It's only when she's tired. Walking while nursing or laying down in our bed seems to help. Sitting really ticks her off, as does getting hot (so swaddling is out). Otherwise she is a wonderfully tempered baby and doesn't ever fuss, but she does sleep a lot and it's so hard for me to feel like I can't take her out in case she gets tired. We have tried chamomilla 30c and it's done nothing. I don't know what else to try.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is very likely that your baby is suffering from Baby GERD and I shall copy my default therapy which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

Attempted diagnosis and treatment of a chronic illness via an internet forum is ill advised and border-line unethical.

Katbothwell, I urge you to review the websites disclaimer found at the bottom of every topic and consult a local doctor of your choosing for any diagnosis and treatment that may be required.

I'm definitely not looking for a medical diagnosis - she does not seem sick to me and if she did I would of course go to her doctor - I'm simply looking to stop having blood drawn every time my baby tries to nurse to sleep. My chest is covered in scratch marks and its getting so frustrating that I at times dread feeding her. The only 'medical advice' that I've received is that she's fighting sleep and I should put gloves on her. That is not a real solution so I am consulting elsewhere.
