    Baby wants to be on the breast 24/7
    Anon_28892 posted:
    Anyone have any tips on how to deal with the baby who just doesn't want to stop nursing and rejects pacifers?
    Anon_38314 responded:
    It all depends on how old baby is. If baby is new say under three months I would just give em the boob all the time it will help with supply and its comforting to baby. After that I really dont know... Does he scream when not given the breast when its not a reasonable feeding time? If not I would just let em be. But if so baby might be actually hungry. This is probably no help to you ... Good luck.

    I am going through this right now. My baby is almost 3 weeks old and must have hit her growth spurt. Sometimes they have their growing times and want to nurse more. Just go with it--it will get better after a couple of days.

    I agree new baby will want the breast constantly. In some countries women carry their baby against their skin and offer the breast more than a hundred times a day. It is a comfort and some babies just like to eat eat eat. Mine certainly did the first month that is all he did. He would wake me every hour. A lot of times I slept through his nursing. Just know that it will pass but it is important that you do this. Part of mommyhood...
