Okay sort of just a vent here, but why does everyone think my BF baby is hungry? My DH mentioned to his mom today in a text that our son was crying. Her first response was 'is he getting enough food?' He said yes she's getting ready to feed him now. Our boy has been crazy fussy the last three days. Like if he's awake and not on my boob he's crying. So I texted my mom asking if she had any mom tricks up her sleeve to help. Her first response was 'is he gassy?' I said no we even tried gripe water and gas drops. Next suggestion from her-'give him some cereal in a bottle'. I know their intentions are good, but my baby is on my boob every hour and a half. He's definitely eating plenty! And he shows every sign of being full as soon as he's done eating. He's also only 5.5 weeks old. The crying does come after he wakes up though. He is just basically obsessed with sucking eight now and won't take a pacifier. Is this the general response that most people get? Or is it just me? Even my husband does it sometimes!
