I'll try to keep it as short as possible:
My EBF 4 week old spits up ALOT..up to a few times after a feeding. He often gurgles, chokes, gags, & then spits up. Usually he's a happy spitter but sometimes he'll cry. He often wakes up screaming.
He is not happy unless he is being held and gently rocked or nursing. My mom says he's spitting up so much being he is eating too much. She is telling me to distract him and feed him well past 2 hours. This in itself is tiring trying to distract him for sometimes an hour or he'll scream and scream. But he is distractable...
When do I know to feed him. If I offer it, he'll take it but I sometimes can delay if I walk around with him. He won't just sit and play usually. Sometimes I'm so tired I'll just latch him on and he'll eat and spit up after. What to do??
Also, He has never been a good sleeper, but this week he is especially not sleeping all day/night. Within 5 minutes after I've gotten him to sleep, he grunts and then starts crying. He won't sleep more than 15 min unless on the breast or being held while walking around. Possibly once a day, he'll sleep an hour and a half but only if he's on his tummy in which case I'm awake watching him the entire time. Help! Can't get more than 15min of sleep at a time!
