Re: Comfort sucking night and day
I hope it helps to hear that your baby is completely normal.
Now that he has transitioned out of the newborn phase and into being an alert distracted baby he is like a little scientist, trying to make sense out of his environment, both internal and external.
His internal hard wiring tells him " Stay safe. Stay close to mamma."
His internal instincts prompt him to cry out if the warmth and safety of mamma's body are not nearby.
that is normal.
i loved my sling for this very reason. i wore my lo's in a cloth ring style sling and for me that made mothering so much easier and rewarding. my lo could nurse at leisure while I went about my daily activities.
however, some mothers find it helpful to be diligent about sitting down and nursing every 2-3 hours during the day and if the lo still wants to suck after a good strong feeding,
a few minutes on the pacifier does the trick.
