DS started nursing every hour during the day at about 2.5 weeks. I thought it was his 3 week growth spurt, but he is still doing it at almost 4 weeks. He goes about 2-3 hours between nursing at night.
If that is how much he needs to nurse, I am fine with it, but I want to make sure that I am not over feeding him. I am getting flack from my family about feeding him too much (as he also seems to be displaying signs of gas discomfort). Not that they are experts, but they are making me question my parenting.
I try just playing with him, and giving him my finger or a nuk to suck on before feeding him, but he screams until I give him the boob.
He is still young yet, do you think that he is just THAT hungry all the time? Does anyone else feed their LO so frequently? I am pretty sure he is getting alot at each feeding because I can hear him gulping down the milk.
