My son is 9 weeks old, and wants to nurse all day. It seems like he gets fed, and literally an hour later he is screaming for more. I feel like he might not be getting full enough with the breastmilk. Is this normal? I have been exclusively breastfeeding since birth, but I think it may be time to start supplementing. I dont know what to do... I just want him to be satisfied and not hungry :( Any suggestions?? Thanks moms!Answer Question

I know that it is tough, but what you are experiencing is very normal. He is probably going through a growth spurt, and needs the extra calories. DO NOT start supplementing! There is no need to. Some suggestions would be to keep up your water and calorie intake. If he is nursing, you should be drinking. I know it can be a lot, but just know that it does get more predictable, and no breastfeeding mother ever loves breastfeeding 100% of the time. Please check out some of the breastfeeding groups here, they are filled with very knowledgeable mothers.
