DS (7 weeks has me feeling like a breastfeeding newbie again! He's just so much different than his sister (3 years) that I'm feeling a little unsure of myself at times.
DD nursed every 2 hours (aside from during growth spurts) from almost the moment she entered this world until she was over 1 year old. DS could not be more different. It feels like he nurses constantly. Nights are a little better with him going 3.5 hours for his first stretch however that's after several hours of VERY fussy cluster feeding.
I know this is quite normal for his age it's just taking some adjusting to on my part. I don't really know how often he nurses throughout the day and I don't watch the clock. I'm sure part of it is my fault as I just automatically nurse him when he gets fussy or upset. It just seems much better than listening to him cry and lets me continue to do stuff with my daughter while DS nurses.
What really has me stressed is being able to leave DS at some point. We are going to a wedding at the beginning of Oct and I'll be leaving DS with my parents. I haven't been able to pump yet to even see if he'll take a bottle because he's always nursing.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm stressing and debating even going at this point even though I'd really like to.
