I'm writing this post bc I'm concerned that my son isn't getting enough. Yesterday he went 5 hours, during the day, without a wet diaper! In a way, I think this is my fault because he wont eat unless we're together -suddenly bottles aren't fun anymore. Yesterday we were away from each other quite a bit. Normally he has about 5 fully saturated disposable diapers -he wears a size bigger than he should bc of his big bms. He's happy, very enegetic so I haven't worried too much about how much he's peeing - although he's never gone so long before without. As for bms he goes about once or twice every couple of days -it keeps decreasing -it was once every other day. Now its every couple of days or even three days, although when he does go it def. isn't a little. I know it's normal for bfed babies to go up to a week w/out bms but is this infrequency normal too?
Another thing that concerns me is his eating habits. He wont eat unless it's from me -this is a new development since for 5 months he had no issues with a bottle. And he wont eat in public which he used to do just fine, he's very distractable, even to the point that it feels like he'll go hungry. This isn't too much of a big problem, since we don't go out for extended periods of time, but nonetheless it concerns me. I would get a nursing necklace but when I wear any necklace he bcms more interested in it than nursing
Tips, ideas, am I starving him?!
