My 2.5 week old has suddenly decided he wants to feed for periods of between one and two hours at a time. I was up what felt like all night and now my nipples feel like they're on fire!
I thought he was doing so well - we'd been finishing feeds in half an hour and he'd sleep for a few hours before wanting more - what's happening?
Also last night he kept demanding the breast and then spitting it out and wriggling around (I DID burp him a few times)... eventually I couldn't take it anymore and handed him to DH. He cried for about 20 minutes before falling asleep for three hours.
This morning I fed him for 1.5 hours on one nipple. I noticed afterwards that there was still a fair bit of milk left in that breast. He looks and feels like he's latching properly, and it's never been a problem before, but could that be part of the problem?
I'm really confused and frustrated. Any help would be fantastic!!
