So yesterday was such a wierd day. Kessler wasn't happy unless he was sleeping or sucking on something. He's never been fond of a paci, but for a little bit of the time I could keep one in his mouth, he would start to doze off and then when it popped out, he's go nuts. I mean like nursing for 45-1hr session, starting to pass out, burp, and wake up freaking out and wanting to suck. I thought maybe growth spurt, so I'd give him a little time and then let him nurse again, but one of the times after I let him nurse again he spit up a bunch leading me to think he wasn't really hungry but just wanting to suck. And I'm confident I'm making milk b/c he also pulled off kind of pissed that milk was coming out. So it was a crazy night as well to begin with. Now he's ben asleep for 5 1/2 hours and with all the frequent nursing yesterday and last night. OMG! My boobs are insane. They feel like when my milk came in. The sucky part is I got my accessories for my old medela pump and they didn't come with tubing. What a tease! SO I have an almost complete pump that I could take care of the pressure and let him continue to sleep but with no tubing it's useless!!!! GGGRRRRR!!!! He's almost 3 weeks. Someone reassure me that he's about to hit a growth spurt or something b/c I can't handle this new baby that's not happy unless sucking but doesn't suck on a paci. I simple refuse to be a human paci. HELP!
3 weeks is a really typical time for cluster feed/growth spurt. I bet he's about to grow! Sorry you're in discomfort.. I 100% understand!

Definelty sounds like a growth spurt! Don't forget your can hand express if you need to in order to relieve some of the pressure.
