My one month old wants to comfort nurse, but doesn't want all the milk with it. He will fill up and burp/spit up then act as though he wants to nurse more but won't latch on fully and pinch the nipple, or fuss.
I have ended up giving him a pacifier only at the begining of the night. He gets really tired and fussy at night and goes longer between feeds at night as well.
He is usually more content on just filling up during the day and only wants to comfort nurse at a couple of feedings before midnight then pretty much crashes, except for a couple more feedings (without comfort nursing or a pacifier) until morning.
I know a pacifier is a breast feeding no-no, but has yet to be nipple confused and only uses it once or twice a night for a VERY short period of time.
Tips or advice welcome!
