My son is 7 weeks old and does not use a pacifier. My 4 yr old used one and we had a very hard time breaking him of it. I did not breastfeed my older but am with my newborn. I feel like he is using my breast as a pacifier and just wanted to know if that is normal. Half the time I dont feel like he is even eating just sucking to suck. He is very fussy and only seems to not be when he is at my breast. He wont even stay asleep if i lay him down. I have literally sat on the couch for two weeks it feels like. I just need some advice. I dont know that I can keep it up. My nipples are swollen and bruised.
