I'm 1st time mom. My 5 month girl is most of the time nursing too long (i think) She gets very heavy and feels like she is should be full by now. She nurses only. She barely ever shows any signs that she is full. She was spitting up a lot since she started breastfeeding. So, when she is eating 5 to 30 no matter how long she will still be spitting out. I have noticed when she turned 5 m.o there were maybe like 2 or 3 times she pulled her head upward, so i assumed she was full. There are times she falls a sleep (could be different meaning. This makes it more confusing). And i know that babies would slow down when they are full. But that could also mean they they are tired on sucking too long.... Recently she was eating for about 25 minutes and still would suck i had to take it away but she did not cry but did spit out (it was like burst out forward). So i figured out that was too much. When do usually babies start showing they are full????? Also, she constantly putting hands in her mouth sucking on them. When she would hold a material she would move her head little bit side to side put material to her mouth and make noises like aah-aah-aah... Usually stuff like this happened about an hour to hour in the half to about two hours. Maybe because she wants to suck on something and sleep? There are times she falls a sleep and times she won't and does this thing for a while. I always give her specifier, but seems she always wants to suck or something. I even started giving her at 4 months and 3 weeks some rice cereal.... My baby is very confusing to me, and still can't figure her out.
