My little one is two weeks old. She is a good nurser (except for the smacking, which I've been told is because my breasts are so huge right now). She is peeing, pooping and gaining like a champ. However, while she has naturally relaxed into a two to three hour day schedule and a 3-4 hour night schedule, from about 6:30 until 9 or so at night she screams. I mean HOWLS! She constantly wants to nurse, but nursing makes her continuously spit up... like she is getting too much?!? Is that possible at two weeks? I've been told she may have laryngomalacia, but that shouldn't affect her nursing, except that flat on her back she sometimes gags. Any advise? Should I just let her stay on my boob and spit up, hold her while she screams frantically? I'm losing my mind All she wants it so suck, but when she continues to eat at the breast her tummy gets upset. It's WAY too early to start a pacifier. My finger works temporarily, but eventually that just ticks her off too. Any advise??
