    Re: 2 questions

    Maybe try propping a pillow under him so this positions him back a little. With the pain, it sounds like the latch is not right. Maybe the propping will help.

    Re: How Long? How Often?

    Sounds like my Kami when she was that age. She used me as a paci and it increases when she goes through growth spurts or when her gums bother her.
