My baby is 4 weeks old. We just started introducing a pacifier and I'm concerned about confusing hunger with the need to suck. It seems like he is constantly giving us hunger cues. He'll take the pacifier and won't spit it out and he'll fall asleep for about 10 min but when the paci falls out he starts fussing again. Sometimes I'll put him to my breast to see if maybe he's hungry but he isn't swallowing just sucking and it HURTS! when he is swallowing/feeding it doesn't hurt at all. Is he going through a growth spurt and not drinking because my supply hasn't caught up yet or is the pacifier ruining the good latch we had and he's no getting a good feeding because of bad latch ? Not sure what to do. My nipples are totally sore from constantly trying to feed him which is why we tried s paci but I don't want him to be hungry. How do I know when he's hungry and when he just want to suck and can a pacifier mess up a good latch for a 4 week old? We had been doing great with BF'ong and it never hurt anymore but now he's wearing me out!!!!!!
