Unless I am holding him,feeding him,or he is asleep.my 6 week old is screaming.He seems to take a bottle every hour or so when he is awake..Im not sure it he is always hungry or its the sucking reflex.Lately he only takes a few short short naps in the afternoon and sleeps 9 ish to midnight then we r yp again around 3 then 6.I cant get anything done and i rarely go out bc he always wants to eat it seems and takes the full hour most of the time.Any advice or anyone else in the same situation?

My baby was the same way, he had reflux! He got on some meds and within a week he was happy and not wanting to eat all the time. He is almost 8 months old now and still on the meds. If he misses a dose he wants to be held all the time and wont sleep anywhere else but on me. Talk to his Dr and see what he thinks, good luck!!

I had a similar problem a few weeks ago (my boy is 9 weeks now). He's probably going through a growth spurt. In my situation he was wanting more than normal when I fed him, causing longer time in between feedings. Either that or his tummy might be upset. Any gas? Or he might be cholic (that develops around 6 weeks). You can always try asking your pediatrician too. Good luck!
