My one week old nurses often -- once an hour for most of the day -- but she seems to be satisfied for the most part and is healthy.
HOWEVER, she goes through a period in the afternoon and early evening where she wants to be on the breast nonstop. If I put her down after a feeding she is rooting and mouthing again within five minutes and is soon screaming if she doesn't get the breast. Everyone tells me to just feed her when she asks for it, so I have been accomodating this and just feeding her back to back. But yesterday we hit the wall when she started at 1 p.m. and wouldn't stop till 11 p.m. She rejected a pacifier and she truly seemed hungry and desperate to feed, but was never satisfied.
Please, please, please help. I don't know what to do and can't imagine going through that ordeal again.
