    I've had two sucky babies. The first point blank refused the dummy and my second only accepted it at 7mths.

    I'm glad you are getting more rest.

    Good on you Redlips! Wanted to send sympathy and understanding My son is 3weeks 4 days and normally feeds for 40 mins every hour, with a few mins play and a short 5 min catnap (during which he lays on me - the moment we move him he wakes up, if anyone else takes him he refuses to sleep). I've found it useful to give some feeds lying on my side as it puts pressure on different nipple areas and he will catnap on the bed, so long as the whole length of his body is touching me. Luckily we get a couple of long stints of sleep of 3-4 hrs per night or I wld be going spare.... Take care.

    Have you seen a lactation consultant?
    I booked a private one when DS was constantly feeding at 6wks and i was considering changing to formula.

    She helped me immensely and i then fed DS till 8mths old

    The local LC is the reason why I stopped breastfeeding last time so that's not an option.

    I would go with the dummy or put her in bed with you.

    I second feeding lying down as well.
    Thanks, I didn't know that

    So it dawned on me last night that she may have reflux.
    How would I know if she's spewing from feeding too often or she's feeding often because she's spewing?
