Re: constant breast feeding and attention at six weeks
One thing that might be happening is that your LO is having an upset tummy.
Sometimes babies can't distinguish between the feeling of hunger and the feeling of an upset tummy so they think they need to eat when really their tummy is just hurting.
If your LO is chronically fussy and keeps up this always-eating pattern for a long time, perhaps consider an elimination diet?
(My LO had a growth spurt right around 6 weeks as well, though, so if it passes soon it was probably just a growth spurt)
20 hours of hypnobirthing and I LOVED every second of it!
