It's so confusing trying to understand why they are unsettled...honestly Ivy has not slept for more than 1.5 hours at a time over the last 24 hours...and when she does sleep she wriggles and makes noise and doesn't look happy. I need to go to the shops so its time to wake and feed again before we go!!

Oh was also told if you are feeding less than 2 hours to put back onto the same boob and not keep alternating till over the 2 hrs. Something to do with the type of milk they get.

try not to confuse being tired with hunger - the signs often very similar. will root, cry, look hungry when all they need is resettling. i would try to resetlle if under 2 hours even if it means he is in your arms temporarily.
i know there was a discussion re dummies earlier on in the thread but reflux babies need to suck as it sucks the acid back down and is therapeutic. even tressilian - bad babycentre! - reccomends them for reflux- have you considered using one for resettling so you can get him to go for 21/2 - 3 hourly?

Ella is 6 weeks (I can't quite believe it!)
My main issues is gas. She is very gassy and seems to scream at night but not in the day.
Also still worried about the shields, but my supply is still huge and she is definitely gaining weight and sleeping and wet and dirty nappies, so will meet with a LC soon after I find out how much she weighs.
Also, sleep like you all, is an issue.. we do have newborns though!
DS has decided to not have a nap today, so no nap for me as DH fell asleep while i was feeding Ella
