Post subject: My newborn of 9 days has been really Fuzzy about his meals
My newborn baby boy of 9 days has been really fuzzy these past 2 days. I was breast feeding him naturally the first two days and it seemed he was not getting enough milk and would consciously wake up every 40 mins to an hour to feed. I got exhausted after a while so I got a breast pump and things went well the first couple days I was using it. Then I started noticing he wouldn't get full with 3 oz I gave him so I gave him 3 1/2 oz that wasn't enough then 4 oz. Finally he was okay with 4 oz but the next following night I gave him 4 oz as usual but he wasn't satisfied. He was crying moving his head side to side putting his hands in his mouth so I gave him 1/2 oz more and finally settled for that. Now he wakes up every hour or two and drinks close to 5 oz is that normal or am I over feeding him? His pediatrician told me to feed him on demand as I am but I'm concerned its to much, some feedings when I burp him he spits up milk and wants more once I lay him down. Is this normal should I be concerned?
