Wyatt is almost 9 weeks now and for the past 3 weeks he has been eating NON stop (every 30-60 minutes on good days). I REALLY need to get him out of this for my sanity. It seems like as soon as he is done, I go make me some food and by the time I sit down he is crying for more. I know he really doesnt need to eat all this much, I think it is more so for comfort etc. He is gaining weight and everything fine. My question is, since I know that it is mostly for comfort, how do I know when/if he is REALLY hungry? By this age, Noah was nursing every 2-3 hours, so this is really different for me. Everyone in my family says to give him cereal, but I dont think that real hunger is what the problem is. Could I be wrong? I mean, he is just 2 months old? We go for his check up tomorrow and I will talk to the dr more there, but wondering what your thoughts are? I mean, should I gradually just stop feeding him so much and let him CIO? I hate to have him cry, but I dont know what else to do. I mean, I would hold him and comfort him. I am still really trying the binky, but he doesnt want it We have tried different ones and no luck. We are trying the NUK right now, I have heard that is best. He takes bottles fine when we give them to him. I wanted to be able to have DH give him one 1x a day, and was trying to workin in pumping the last couple of weeks. But he just keeps wanting to eat so much, that time wise it is IMPOSSIBLE for me.
Any tips and or advice is SO appreciated!
