My LO is 13 days old and wants to nurse constantly. He's gaining weight (he's almost a pound over his birth weight) so I know he's eating but he's never satisfied. He's not a very efficient eater and I have to rouse him constantly to make sure he's eating and not just hanging out on my breast. Our feedings can last more than hour and he rarely wants to nap afterwards -- he just wants to keep eating and will cry (though sometimes he'll stop crying if we hold him for a while).
The pediatrician and lactation consultant told us to feed him every 2 hours and to have him nurse 20 minutes on each breast, then top him off with breastmilk from a bottle (delivered by my husband). But this rarely satisfies him and he often wails until we give him more bottle or my breast. Even then, he only goes down for a nap occasionally.
I'm running out of energy and have no idea what to do. I also am completely thrown off schedule and don't know when to do his next feeding since one seems to blur into the next.
Any advice/suggestions/thoughts welcome.
