Re: Is this normal?
No worries. What you describe is absolutely normal, and will not lead to overeating. A baby who comforts herself with a quick sojourn at the breast isn't getting a lot to eat. She's probably taking a few swallows in between sobs, but as soon as she's feeling better she's going to squirm to get down again. Probably so she can whack herself in the face again with that toy, but hey- that's babies for you!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
