Re: Going insane - 6.5 wk old wants to nurse all the time
Hang in there. It will get easier mama. My first daughter nursed every 90 minutes around the clock. And sometimes she would nurse almost the entire 90 minutes. It's completely normal. Their job is to triple their birth weight in a year... and believe it or not, he knows when he's hungry and how much he needs. I promise you that he's not overeating. Neither of my babies have been willing to take a pacifier either, so I understand you there.
What I did was just camp out on the couch for the first 8 weeks or so. It will get better.
