I have a 4 week old daughter [who is quickly gaining weight snd completely healthy] and have a couple questions about bf, hope you ladies can help!
1. She has been super fussy in the evenings. The only thing that seems to satisfy her is eating every hour [or more often]. I know fussy evenings are common, but is it common for her to need to eat every hour? Any suggestions on how to make her happy during these fussy times?
2, When she wakes up to eat at night, she feeds for a short time [between 5-10 minutes] and then falls back asleep. If I try to wake her to feed her more, she gets fussy and refuses to eat more. Is it alright to let her sleep after the initial small meal? She usually goes 4 hours when she initially goes to sleep and then wakes every 2 hours after that.
3. Lately, she has gone from happily being held or lying down to screaming and fussy. Usually when she starts screaming, the only thing that makes her happy is to eat. Any ideas on why she doesn't give any other hunger cues?
[OT] 4. I am thinking about buying a swing to use during the day when I am home alone during the day. Any suggestions on swings that you found especially useful?
