I have a 7 week old baby who has NO patience once he has decided he is ready to eat. He goes from sweet precious baby to screaming baby in a split second once he's hungry. I know he's not starving since he was 8 lbs 5 ozs at birth, 7 lbs 11 ozs when he left the hospital, and is at least 13 lbs now. He is wearing 3-6 months clothes. He screams so loudly that sadly family members wonder if he has been hurt. My mother is shocked my the screaming and she has two children and my MIL who has 5 children has never heard anything like it before. He also screams when he is being burped because he wants to be feeding instead. I would try to feed him before he's "ready" except his schedule has been fairly irregular lately (2-4 hrs between feedings.
Does anyone else have a baby like this? How do you handle the situation? Am I doing something wrong? His reaction to being hungry is very difficult if I'm not 1 minute away from being able to feed him... ie. at the mall, or grocery store. He makes such a scene until I can feed him that people are staring at me.
