Well at two months, I'd guess that he's going through a growth spurt. So it would make sense for him to want to eat all the time. And there may be some comfort sucking going on as well. Both of my kiddos were comfort suckers. I totally caved with my first and was a little less willing with my second. But I think that's a choice each mama has to make for herself. For me, breastfeeding all the way through was equally split between nutrition and comfort, so I was ok with it. It's gets a little tiresome as they get older and wiggly, but the benefits far outweighed the inconvenience for me. Hang in there!!
