Ok so I really need some ideas on what to do or at least some motivational/inspirational words, especially since my husband is away for the week and I am all by myself with 4 kids until then.
Alright long story short my newborn will not let me do anything. Right now as I type I have him propped up on my shoulder. I have not been able to put him down for more than 10 minutes since 11 this morning (it is now 6pm) and for about 6 out of those 7 hours I have been breastfeeding him. No matter what he just does not seem to get satisfied. I even got desperate enough to give him 2 oz of formula and after he downed ALL of that I burped him and he still kept sucking on his hands and whining and showing all of his hunger cues. He will not let me put him down, if I do he starts screaming and here it is dinner time and my 3 older kids are complaining that they are hungry but I cant get away to cook for them, I AM NEAR TEARS!! please help

Sweetie I think he's hungry. I think BF is a wonderful thing and did it with all 3 of mine but you should think about supplementing with formula. How's your milk supply???
