In a previous post, I wrote that my son FINALLY took to breastfeeding after numerous daily attempts. He is 3 months old tomorrow.
Now my concern is that he will only nurse if I put him to breast as soon as he wakes from his nap, and he nurses through the night if he wakes up and when he wakes in the morning. BUT if he is alert and is hungry, he will scream and cry so we resort to a bottle and he is satisfied. Does anybody have an idea why this is so? (the screaming at my boobs!)
He nurses about 80% of the day and 20% is from a bottle of expressed BM. So he only gets breastmilk and nothing else. I don't get why this happens. I thought that maybe he just isn't hungry, but he ends up crying like he is starving and when he gets a bottle he is serene and satisfied and happy after.
