ok, latest 'crisis' is as follows:
DS is 8 weeks and having some trouble lately nursing. he seems to latch on fine and is content for about 10 minutes, but then starts acting really odd. he'll squirm, lick my nipple, pretend he cant find me or latch on, then all of the sudden squeal and cry. i'll burp him and switch sides, then a few minutes later, same thing. he used to fall asleep as i nursed him, but now i have no clue what's going on. am i doing something wrong? any suggestions??
AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR KIND WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THIS FIRST TIME MOMMA!
Other then that I really don't know, sorry.

And, yes on the pee thing - babes often appear to have a bfing problem that is actually them signalling they need to pee before they drink more.
I'd bet you $20 that's what's going on. it's my dd's most reliable sign that she needs to pee. you can either hold him over a potty or bowl like this: http://www.tribalbaby.org/EChowtostart.html (picture midway down the page) or just ignore it (he'll learn to just pee in his diaper soon). either way, it's not anything to worry about. good luck!
