My baby nurses every 2 hours during the day and sleeps 6 hours at night. Is this normal?
Also this past week he has been really fussy on the breast. Usually during the day his feeds would last 15 minutes. Now he will suck for 1-3 minutes then protests that he's finished and I sit him up, burp him and he won't go back on. Is he possibly getting enough in those minutes? Then I go up to bedroom and lie down with him, sing to him and pat his back he eventually will start to feed again and feed for 10/15 minutes.
This has tied me down, can't leave the house as he is so fussy. He is drooling a lot so he may be teething? He is underweight so I want to feed him as much as I can, leaving the house means he misses a proper feed.
Should I space out his feeds to 2 and a half or 3 hours? Maybe then he will be more hungry and stay on breast longer?
We are going on holidays next week and I am dreading it. I'll be stuck in the apartment all week with him! Please help!
