Hi, my name is Melanie. I hope you can help me on this one.I have a baby who was born 8 wks. early.He was in the NICU for about a month .He has been home with us for about 6 wks.He is now 2 wks. past what his actual due date was. so he is really a 2 wk. old.Recently he started to do something different.At about 1 out of every 5 feedings he will show very hungry and eat well for about 10-15 min.Then he will pull off and still appear hungry. I will place him back on and he will suck for a sec. or two. When the milk starts to flow he will pull off and whine and cry. I will try again with the same result.He will appear hungry for awhile until he eventually calms to sleep or at least quiet.I even tried a pacifier to see if maybe he was full and just wanted to suck,but he refuses and only wants the breast. I can't stop the flow of milk, and don't want to for fear it will interfere with production. what can I do ? it is very frustrating for the both of us. hope you can help or know someone who can.
