My 7 week old for the past three weeks has been consistently pulling off screaming during the day on both sides. This happens after he feeds well for anywhere from 2-8 minutes. I offer the other breast, and I have tried offering the bottle after this happens. He refuses anything other than his pacifier. He may just need non-nutritive sucking? He has also been having a lot of sleeping issues, only sleeping during the day if held (I have tried everything). I am thinking that perhaps he is too tired to properly feed during the day. This is a vicious cycle. Any advice?
He feeds well (feeds for 10-20 mins and falls asleep or pulls himself off if done) and sleeps great at night.
This started happening at 4 weeks old while being hospitalized for a fever work up. Otherwise he is healthy.
