and i'm exhausted. why isn't he getting full up? he keeps pulling himself off as if he's full then screaming t go back on. there is milk in there and his latch is perfect!

Is he actually sucking or just gumming at your boob for comfort?

how old?

aww is he very small? it's very common for them to cluster feed in the eenings

DD used to do 5-10 every evening! I do sympathise - it was tiring, but I ended up loving it. How old is he?

Probably cluster feeding - obviously depending on his age.

When dd2 was about 2 weeks I spent the whole of the Brit Awards bf - just swapping sides.

It doesn't stay like this forever!

growth spurt or cluster feeding.
get some chocolate and tv remote and go with it, it will pass

h really? he's 10 days so that sounds likely. how many days will he do this for? he has only had one 3 hr sleep all day!

if it is a growth spurt he will do this for about 48 hours then settle down. It is hard work, but it will ramp up your supply for him.

so do eat the chocolate!

Oh I remember a 7 hour feed from dd when she was little. Dh was away and I was delirious by the end of it, but we survived!

So looking forward to going through these stages again soon hmm.

see if you can work out how to feed lying down in bed - this saved my bacon in the early days as you can both doze off when you need to without disturbing each other
