Well it's the evening and the cluster feeding fussiness started...
She won't latch, and if she does she gets mad... Typical...
This night hubs says lemme hold her, plops a binky in her mouth and problem solved.... Should I pump... Should I just let it go? It's only 730 pm here. Her diapers are good, she ate nicely about 530-6. So yeah. I'm sure she isn't hungry... She's 6 weeks old btw.

There's no reason to pump unless you miss a feeding. You're following her demand. so you're not missing a feeding.

I wouldn't. But make sure you watch for early hunger cues... hands to the mouth and such. Make sure you aren't using the paci to "hold her over" from nursing.

Pacifier or not, she will always want to eat when hungry. Maybe she just needed comfort instead. I would pump if I could just because it never hurts to have extra on hand. Pumping also benefits your supply if a decrease in supply is a concern. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry too much. A baby's needs will change, and your body will change to accomodate those needs.

Sometimes baby's won't latch bc they have gas and are uncomfortable. Don't sweat it though. Like others have said, when she's hungry, she will eat. Let us know if the problem progresses!

Yes gas! That is exactly what it must have been... Every night she get fussy and noisy bc I of gas I assume. She became fine lady night when I side nursed, but I didn't burp her and she spat up.... Silly me!

Babies have a "fussy period" almost each evening. They're just fussy for no reason and its just them being them.

The most common cause of gassiness and spitting up is overactive letdown and oversupply. Changing positions so she isn't under the breast to decrease the force of the flow into her mouth will help.

Good idea! I'll have try the reclined position. I have big breast so she's always under! Lol
