My baby wants to feed every hour it seems, or does she just want to comfort suck? She won't take a pacifier at these times, although will take one at other points durring the day. She missed her 3-week growth spurt, possibly because I was told by a lactation consultant at 2 weeks that I was feeding her TOO often and to not feed more than every 3 hours and that her usual "feeding cues" were unreliable indicators of real hunger. I also have an oversupply of milk. She nurses anywhere from 10 minutes - 45 min and only one one side, since I was told to block feed.
She's screaming right now, and rooting against me like she's hungry even though it's only been an hour since she finished eating (for 20 minutes). I'm going to offer her the other breast since it's very full and the one I used last feeding is still soft. Should I be doing this? I'm thinking she's having her growth spurt now and really does want the milk.
