    It does sound like colic. He probably needs to eat and then keeps wanting the breast as comfort. Unfortunately, your body doesn't distinguish and will keep producing until he is done at the breast, whether he is hungry or not. Rest assured, colic will eventually disappear. Until then, as the mother of a baby who was extremely colicky, my heart goes out to you.

    It may tire you out, but just hold him close and let him suckle at your breast until he is completely asleep, then burp him and lay him down, it is probably just a phase and will pass, but dont "not" let him suck at the breast if he is wanting to because this can cause other issues. Try and see what happens...good luck
