EBF. For the past three days my kid has been eating every two hours. I am drained. literally. and a little exhausted. And every two hours on the dot he is screaming at me like he hasn't eaten in hours and hours. I have no idea if he is getting enough to eat or not. And at 8 pm (give or take 30 minutes) he starts screaming. screaming like he is in pain and angry and there is nothing i can do to console him. The only thing that calms him is the boob, but even then he screams at it for several minutes before calming down.
Is this a growth spurt? is he hungry? How do I know that I am producing enough? (diapers are normal - 6-7 wet and 3 -4 dirty daily).
The tantrums are really outside his normal calm disposition, which is the reason that I am worried about my supply. Any thoughts?
P.S. I dont pump that often. When I am away I pump and I always pump 3-5 ounces every 3-4 hours. I'm not really pumping any extra to build a supply. Maybe I should be, but pumping is exhausting and I had too many things on my plate, so I dropped my least favorite. (dropping the housework is apparently not an option - blah)
