Hi, my LO is 5 weeks old. He has been a constant feeder since birth. He latched on immediately after birth with no problem and hasn't wanted to let go since! For the last 2 weeks, he has been way better in the day time and only eating every hour or two, however once 7:00 p.m. hits, he wants to eat constantly. He won't go 10 minutes without screaming for more. He will do that until midnight or 1:00 am and then he wakes up every 2 hours to eat during the night. I guess this is comfort sucking but it is also over eating so then he spits up quite a bit. He won't take a pacifier or a bottle of pumped milk. I can't let him cry like he is starving even though I know he does not need more milk. What do I do??
He is a happy spitter, and I do not have a supply problem - even with all the eating he does, I can pump 3-4 oz per side. I am at my wits end because I can't even go to the grocery store without him freaking out, plus I don't get much sleep. We're co-sleeping now even though that is not my preference or else I'd be in the glider all night!
Sorry so long, would love any advice! Thanks a million.
