I am starting to get very frustrated here.... my 2 week old son suddenly started eating pretty much constantly- which I understand relates to his first growth spurt. The frustrating part is that he will only eat from one breast at a sitting now! He will let go of the first breast when he is done with it and then refuse the second breast.
I would think that since he is constantly hungry that he would want more food, but it seems he is eating less at a sitting than before- assuming I am producing the same amount.
All of this is slightly complicated by the fact that I just switched over to breastfeeding solely from BF then bottle supplementing and pumping. I don't know if this behavior is related to DS trying to get my milk supply up and then having enough to just eat from one breast. I guess that is a possibility.
My biggest concern is that I am feeding every 45 minutes or so- even at night! If he would take both breasts then I could at least get a few minutes of sleep.
Is this behavior normal? Should I be worried about pumping the breast that he doesn't eat from?
Thank you for any advice you may have.
