I agree with the other mom's advice. Is your baby actually eating or non-nutritively nursing (using you as a pacifier)? That can get very tiring and you can get very sore as well. My first was so fussy and I thought I would lose my mind, but around that 10 to 12 week mark things started to settle. As long as baby is gaining weight and has frequent poop and pee, hang in there.

Baby is two months. This is still feed on demand stage. Do take Dove's advice about smaller, more frequent feedings as well as keeping baby upright, etc, to minimize chances of reflux.

Feed the baby....

He/she may have reflux causing the fussiness and he/she may find eating to be a comfort. There are some 'tricks' to try to see if the fussiness dwindles.... smaller, more frequent feeds, keeping baby upright for at least 20 minutes after eating, frequent gentle burping during and after a feed, etc.... If none of that works... reflux may not be the issue or the baby may need meds for the reflux.

You could just have a fussy, hungry baby on your hands and there is nothing wrong w/ that either. Baby is only 2 months old... feed and hold him/her as much as baby wants.
