Hi all, you have been such a great resource so I am reaching out again.
My son is almost 10 weeks. At his 2 month appt, he weighed 15.10 and his birth weight was 7.7. He is EBF. So obviously he has no weight issues.
I am wondering if I am misreading hunger cues. When he gets upset, I offer the breast and he always takes it. I have s bit of oversupply as well. Then when he cries and pulls away, I burp him and try again.
I guess I am assuming that he's had his fill only when he has that drunken sailor look or fall asleep after feeding.
Is that true? Does my son always need to sleep or appear satisfied after feeding? He always wants to suck so even when he pulls away and cries, I ofer him the breast and he always takes it.
I am worried that I am overfeeding him and misunderstanding satisfaction signs. I just want your advice on whether a baby will always look satisfied or fall asleep if they've had enough.
If he doesn't want more, but is still crying and wide awake, what should I do to get him to sleep? I have been using the Ergo to walk him around.
