My ds will be 7 weeks tomorrow. He has plenty of wet and poopy diapers and is gaining weight like a champ. I'm getting a bit frustrated because lately it seems like every time he's finished with one side - he falls asleep or un-latches himself - he gets really mad! Crying, grunting, rooting around mad. I put him back on and he'll suck for a little, but it mainly turns into comfort nursing. Or he squirms around, latching and un-latching. It's mainly in the afternoon, but sometimes it happens at night, after I feed him he's asleep, eyes closed, and still fussing. He refuses a pacifier (which really doesn't make me mad at all!), but he's started to find his little fist and suck on that. My question is, any suggestions to get him to calm down? I don't mind the comfort nursing but the squirming is uncomfortable! Sometimes I wish he'd take the paci, even just for a few seconds, to calm down.
