Just had bub #3 two weeks ago and it's been so hard.
The first 7 days was a breeze, he slept all the time and waking every 3-4 hours for a feed.
I was breastfeeding and topping up with formula while waiting for milk to come in.
This week it's been so hard! I am lucky if he sleeps more than 10min in his cot!
He only sleeps on me and calm when cuddled. That includes night time. I tried many ways of putting him back to the cot but he only lasts max 10 min in there.
My milk has finally come in and I have tried breastfeeding him exclusively but he's just not satisfied. He would suck and pull away crying then try sucking again then cry again. And he just seems to be hungry all the time! After he pulls off there's still milk coming out so it's not that there's no milk. And he whinges every hour for feed.
I think he's showing a preference for boob already because when I try to give him bottle top up this week he just refuses it or do the same, suck, cries, suck again and cry again. But he is more settled once I get some formula into him.
Two days ago I ditched the boob and have him formula all day and night and he was so much better, content and settled. Then today and last night I gave him boob only again and he just whinges and whinges and won't sleep.
I am so tired and cranky.
Right now I am really wondering what I was thinking wanting another baby
