We nursed in the car quite a bit, when my son was first born.  He ate so frequently in the beginning, that I could "top him off" before running errands or walking downtown.  
I usually sleep with babe in a separate room, if he is nursing more than usual during the night.  In the mornings, my welll-rested hubby takes over for a few hours so I can nap.  
We had great, and quick, success with gentian violet. Sorry your babe is in pain!  My little guy benefitted from being held in a sitting position when having a bm.

Thanks for sharing--it is helpful to hear!
My son is a little over three months and has never used a pacifier.  His feeding routine has changed alot over the past few weeks...eating less often, but more heartily, not pacifying on the breast as long, and so forth.  He has taken to sucking on his thumbs/fingers.  I used to take that as a sign he wanted to eat, but if I put him on the breast when I see him doing that, now, often he fusses and just pulls away to suck on his fingers.  Is it normal for him to just...
