Hi, my baby 15 days old,from past few days hes been acting very cranky and doesnt let go of the breast even when hes finished. He keeps crying and asking for it. Is this normal?

Crying in an infant peaks between two weeks to almost six weeks after which they appear more settled. The breast is also a pacifier and since the baby does not know any other method keeps asking for it. Hence behaviour is totally normal. To assure yourself that baby is feeding enough ensure that there are minimum seven wet nappies every day and the stools are yellow. It can be very over whelming so please get as much help as possible

Hi Anon,it might be a growth spurt which usually happens at 15 days,he is comfort nursing,its quite normal for babies at this age.

My baby is also 15 days old.. and she does the same .. so I keep checking if milk coming every five minutes otherwise she keeps on sucking and at the end it pains badly. I switch to other breast if one is done.

Same my baby also does after 10 to 15 min feeding she sleeps wen I put her down she wake up n start crying den she keep my nippels in her mouth n sleep so I guess nw a days baby's becoming more advanced n nautanki 😜

I totally agree with Uma ana Heena . I'm facing the same problem . Whole night I put my nipples in my baby's mouth . Till morning my nipples become sore and cracked . He use them as pacifier. 😄😄😄


Is sidelying position safe while feeding at night?
