My 4 wk old wants to nurse constantly (24+ times a day). He never seems satiated and is very fussy when not nursing. This has pretty much been going on since birth. In the past week and 1/2 his stools have been slimy and green. What I've read is that this may be due to him not nursing long enough to receive the hind milk. Is this true? How do I force him to stay at the breast longer? And more importantly, how do I get him to actively nurse and not passively suck?
Help, please! My husband and I are very tired and are close to throwing in the towel on breastfeeding.
