My daughter is a day shy of 8 weeks. She is CONSTANTLY feeding. I have to make her stop in order to eat, go to the bathroom, etc etc. I have no problem feeding on demand it's just i feel like i can't get anything accomplished during the day. Also, now she isn't napping. The last few days it's been a MAX of one 25 min nap. And several 5 min snoozes. Doesn't matter if i hold her the whole time or try and put her down. She wakes up. Then she wants to be back on the breast again. Also she has only been having a bowel movement once every 48 hrs. But when she does go it's a big one. But my concern with it is it's rather sticky. Still the yellow mustard color. But it's thick and sticky. Is this normal? She has had a cold for the last week. (dr says it's nothing to be concerned about) does this have any effect on her bowels? She seems happy. She's a talkative little thing. She just goes through these mood things where if I walk away she's upset. I pick her up she's happy. I'm the main provider for her so i think it's just because she is close to me. Sorry for all the questions. I don't know if they are linked or all separate. Any advice would be helpful. THANK YOU!
