I am confused about what to do for my 6 week old. Some sessions he feeds "normal", finishes 10 minutes after he starts, sucks the whole time. Other sessions, he will start feeding a few minutes, then have a spell of reflux that upsets him, and that throws off the whole session. When he goes back to the breast he is on and off a few sucks at a time and ends up getting upset and is both hungry and not wanting to feed at the same time (at this point he will make hunger cries and root, but then arch his back and wail when brought to the breast). Each time it ends up 2+ hours of feeding/crying/soothing/burping that ends with me getting him to doze off a few minutes after which he wakes and feeds fine.
Is there something I should be doing after a reflux episode that would make this better? The sleeping works but only happens after a couple hours of real fussiness.
Thanks for any tips!
