Advice RE: 3week old baby very hungry and not sleeping
Hi, My baby boy will be 3weeks old tomorrow. He was 10lb 50z born and had regained his birth weight plus 1oz by 2weeks old. He always seems to be hungry and its preventing him from sleeping as he is constantly wanting to be fed. He also seems to struggle to get any wind up (or down). For example, last night he was up every 2hours for feeds which is fair enough. This morning he woke up at 7.30 and breast-fed for 1hour. I winded him and he immediately starting crying, turning his head to my breast and sucking his hands again. I made up a bottle of formula (5oz) which he drank in one go. He then kept crying and has been wanting to be fed right up until 13.30. I took him out in pram for an hour and he fell asleep whilst in pram but as soon as we got home he was screaming to be fed again. I really wanted to persevere with breast feeding but its impossible to keep up with him, my milk doesnt seem to satisfy him at all. Does anyone have any advice?
