Hello everyone, my perfect baby girl just turned 3 weeks old yesterday. She is eating 4 oz. every 3 hrs. during the day. She is bottle fed with breast milk (I am exclusively pumping due to latching issues). At night, she will wake between 1 and 2 am and then again between 4 and 5 am. Lately, hen she wakes, she automatically cries a hysterical "hungry" cry. I put her bottle in the warmer and change her while she is in frantics. I then give her the bottle, she takes 2 oz. and then when I go to burp her she is crying again. She calms down when she gets the bottle again but when finished feeding, she is still crying (and very worked up). It then takes me at least an hour to rock, bounce, sway her back to sleep and into her bassinet. Then, I have to go pump and by the time I'm done pumping I get an hour of sleep before she wakes up again
Any suggestions? Would anyone recommend waking her up before she wakes up herself to keep her calm while feeding? Maybe she won't get so worked up?
