Post subject: My baby is always hungry
My 3 week old baby is constantly hungry. She sleeps through the night already (for the most part) but when she is awake she won't stop eating. She is already eating 12 ounces of formula in a sitting, every 45 minutes to an hour during the day and cries when the bottle is empty. She spits out the pacifier when I try to give her one, and I have been giving her water to soothe her, but I really want to know what's going on. I keep getting told I am miss reading her cues but I am not. She is always looking for a bottle, she sticks her tongue out and such. I am afraid of over feeding her, she never really seems full, she spits up sometimes but then looks for more. I don't know what to do, and her pediatrician just keeps telling me to try the pacifier, which isn't working.
