Baby cries unless held

My one month old has recently started crying/calling out with minute intervals or so when put down and stops as soon as I pick her up. While on the bouncer she either just cries or gives her hunger cues such as opening her mouth and fast breathing. But when I try feeding her she sucks only for a minute and lets go. It seems to be an excuse for being held. Does anyone know what else it could be or if I'm missing something?

Just hold her. She is tiny! Google 4th trimester.?

Agree, just hold her. Being physically touched and having social interaction is a need for babies, just as being fed is a need.

They change so fast, next week she could be different. Just hold her for now and remind yourself it will pass.

Also, it's a mumsnet cliche but try a sling or a baby carrier so you can get some things done while holding her.

She is only a month old, she needs to be close to you especially when she's awake. It's quite normal and won't last forever.

Id hold her. She just needs reassurance you're there.

Is she feeding okay, growing, nappies?
