This is probably a question you dear experienced LLLadies hear all the time
I'm starting to get worried about my supply.
My son is 15 weeks. We just had a few very fussy days - lots of nursing, he no longer sleeps more then 2 hrs at a time (and he used to sleep for 8 straight for a month), and very fussy and unhappy. He also been nursing every 1.5-2 hrs (opposed to ever 3-4 as before).
He looks satisfied when he is done with the breast, but wants to nurse again so soon?
Then we had last night - which was a nightmare - we went out to dinner with him, he was behaving wonderfully, ate at a restaurant, and on the way back fell asleep. Never woke up as we put him down; then woke up 2 hrs later screaming. I nursed him, he quieted down for about 15; and then from then on he would not stop crying. We tried everything - rocking him, listening to music with him, sssshhhhing him, spanking him (this sounds wrong - he really likes for us to lightly and rhythmically spank his butt and back when he is falling asleep), swaddling him. In the 4 hrs after he woke up, he nursed 4 times. He also seems to really not be gentle about it, bites down a lot and my nipples are now as sore as they were the first couple of weeks.
After about 4 hrs of this, my husband put him into a baby bjorn facing him (so there aren't too many distructions) and went for a walk for 45 min. He came back, carrying a pig in a blanket (Kai wrapped in baby bjorn) who was deep asleep. As soon as we tried to put him down - screaming again. DH ended up sitting down holding him and he seemed asleep the entire time. Then I took over - I semi-sat on the second bed holding him so my hubby can get some sleep - he had meetings all day today, and it was around 3 am by then. I sat with him for 2 hrs, and then managed to put him down and he slept for 5 hrs. We decided that it was probably due to teething (even though we cannot see anything)
Now... when I woke up to nurse him, I wasn't overfull like I usually am in the mornings. That kind of scared me. Could all this be because my supply is getting lower and Kai is just really hungry?
He does get 8-9 wet diapers a day at least, and he has been pooping every day/every other day or so which I think is normal for a bf baby.
Oh, now I am really worried. Any advice/explanation of this behavior?
