So the BF craziness continues. Seems like new issues are coming up recently. I have been bf my son since the beginning with no problems until recently. he is almost 5 weeks. Over the past few days to a week, he has wanted to eat then will nurse for about 5-10 mins on one side, slow down or sleep and eventually let go, I will switch him to the otherside and the same will happen. This will go on for no less than 45 mins, usually an hour or more, switching back and forth. Then he is quickly hungry again in an hour, usually less. Yesterday my husband and I had a wedding to go to thqt didn't allow kids, so my sister was watching him for us and I pumped for the missed feedings. I fed him before she came over, finishing about 30 before she got there, and then he became hungary again around the time she got to the house, trying to latch on to my husbands arm lol. so we decided to give him a bottle to see how much he would eat since we didn't have much time. He proceeded to eat 2 oz in about 3 minutes! throughout the night my sister said he would eat anywhere from 2-4 oz easily in no time and seemed content (sleeping - hard for me to get him to most of the time- and no fussing or crying - he seems to fuss alot usually). Now I am worried that he isn't eating enough dispite him nursing for so long at once. Not to mention his constant time at the boob is getting very tiring. I am considering trying EP since I can pump in less time than he takes to eat and I will be able to see how much he is eating and know he is getting enough. Any advice about this or EP in general. I am concerned about everyone saying how hard it is, but can't imagine being able to continue on with his frequent marathon sessions, especially if he isn't getting enough to be satisfied. When I pumped last night for the missed feedings, I got 3 oz for one and the next time got 4 oz, so I don't think I have low supply (if my pump can get that out, he can too since he is more efficient). I don't think this is growth spurt because it has been going on for longer than I would expect that to be. He has a pedi appointment today for the one month visit, so I will see what he weighs and update. Everyone always says he seems small for his age, he was 7 lb 14 oz at birth and 7 lbs 10 oz at 2 week appointment after losing 10 oz after birth. He does have lots of poops and pees, but just still seems hungary after feeding.
