My DS is 6 wks old and seems to eat ALL the time. He sleeps for an hour or two every few hours, but when he's awake all he wants to do is eat. He screams and cries if he doesn't get either the bottle or my breast. And then he'll just spit a good majority of it back up. My husband and I have tried to give a pacifier to try and satisfy the sucking motion, but he just spits them out. I understand that there is a growth spurt around this time frame which could be contributing to this need to eat?
He is getting over a cold atm too.... and fluids of course are very important during this time. But when he spits it all back up it becomes extrememly discouraging.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!!
