For the past 4-5 days my daughter has been constantly eating between 7pm and 10pm with just 10 to 15 minutes in between feeds. She will fall asleep on my breast then when i put her in bed she will wake up crying wanting to feed again. Last night she was on my breast for 30minutes came of for 8 minutes then back on for 10. This morning she has also been constantly feeding, not even wanting to sleep. She wont accept a pacifier no matter how hard i try which i know is a good thing too but i'm worried she is using my breast as her pacifier. She is constantly bopping her head looking for food, she will occasionally suck her hand then come frustrated (maybe because no milk is coming?) and start screaming/crying.
She normally feeds every 2 hours day and night.
Is she just having a growth spurt? Or am i becoming her pacifier?
I am a first time mom, any advice would be greatly appreciated :)
