Re: 5 week old issues - frustrated FTM
A lot of babies are "Goldilocks" eaters. They don't like their milk coming out too fast, and they don't like it too slow. They want it just right. So when milk flow is a little too rapid, they fuss. And when it slows down, they fuss.
The best way to deal with this is to power through it. Don't swap in the paci or bottle for the breast- that just teaches the baby that fussing, rather than working, is what gets results.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
