    My 7 week old is the same way. If she's not sleeping, she's eating.

    I was just reading my way through this website when I stumbled upon this post.

    Last night at 4 am I cried for an hour because I was absolutely SICK of breastfeeding. I felt as though BFing was all I did. All day long, all night long. I was so over it last night. I just cried. And this morning I told my DH that I just wanted a large cup of coffee (something I've been avoiding because I think it causes my baby to be irritable). This post just rang so true to me today.

    ^you know your baby best but fyi studies suggest that if a baby is going to have an adverse reaction to caffeine ingested by mom, a mom has to consume the equivalent of 5 cups of coffee a day. Personally despite having a colicky baby i have my AM cup of coffee every day because life is not worth living without it.

    Thank you so much for this! My lo is 10 weeks old and has acid reflux which has made breastfeeding such a challenge. Everyone has insisted he needs to start taking a bottle so I can take a break. The truth is I think we have finally found our groove and I dont want to start the bottle. Im just starting to enjoy our time during our 10 nursing sessions a day!

    it's so great when you get into that groove. I agree, bottles at this point will only upset the apple cart.

    Thank goodness I found this. My husband was worrying more than me about our 1 week old feeding too much, I knew deep down I should carry on doing what I felt was natural but it's hard to follow your instincts when you're tired and people around you are constantly telling you the opposite. A brilliant article that gave me a bit of comfort just when I needed it, THANK YOU!

    Just stumbled across this post and I LOVE the article!!! I breastfed my son for 3 years and just had my daughter.. It has been a long time since I nursed a newborn. Glad I came across this article. Gave me reassurance and was able to share and educate others! Thank you for posting!
