    Help He is never full!!

    Advertisements
    So I just spend the day with Nikolai screaming. The only thing that calmed the screams was eating. I would latch him to the breast and he would eat. Constantly sucking and swallowing. I KNOW he is eating because my breasts "deflate." The second I remove my breast he SCREAMS till i put my breast back in his mouth. He just spent the whole day on mybreast eating. What do I do? Someone help!!

    it's very possible he is either using you as a pacifier or he's hitting a growth spurt. i know there were times with DS when it felt like he was latched 24/7 but as with most things....this too shall pass. if you aren' apposed to pacifiers you could try one just to see if it's the sucking he wants, not necessarily to eat.

    Is he falling asleep on the breast, is he going through a spurt? or is it just a comfort?

    Probably a growth spurt. Let him nurse, he is making sure to increase your milk supply.
