Ok so my LO is one month old this coming Saturday and it seems like the last two weeks have been one long perpetual growth spurt. Here are some experiences. Would love to hear any comments/suggestions/words of encouragement that anyone can offer!
- Nursing on demand but DS seems to be spitting up over the past couple days. He thinks he's hungry but wondering if he's still learning to know when he's full. I think the spit up is normal as he's figuring this all out?
- At night (primarily between 8-10 pm) I don't seem to be able to satisfy him. I nurse but he gets frustrated when he's not getting as much as early in the day (it seems) so I'm pumping one bottle after my am feed in order to use it at night and also have my DH participate. Wondering the best way to manage these cluster feed times and hoping this is part of his age and growth spurt and it will calm down. If I feel like I'm 'empty' and still try to nurse him he cries out of frustration.
I hope this all makes sense. Running on little sleep as I know all can relate to. . .
