He cries after having nursed on both sides? Do you offer the breast again at that point?

I do but I'm not sure why he crys. Hubby thinks it bc I don't let him nurse that long as I did with Elliot m

You know you're making enough by diaper count.  If he CRIES, just nurse again.

Never time feedings. Let him nurse on one sise until he comes off on his own, burp and offer the other. Repeat until he determines that he wants no more. He is probably in a growth spurt right now and needs to build your supply.up by nursing.

As he has growth spurts he needs small increases. He may also need to comfort nurse.

Is he coming off on his own or are you removing him? Since you're making enough dipes you don't have a supply issue going. You may merely have a fussier baby this time around.

He comes off all on his own and he cries while at the breast.
