My baby is 10-weeks old tomorrow. Yesterday and today, we've been in a cycle of more or less constant feeding, as if heading into a growth spurt. (She is a "snack" nurser at it is - I rarely get more than an hour - if even that - in between daytime feeds).
I know it's possibly a growth spurt, but I'm a little worried because she's exhibiting cluster feeding behavior until the point my breasts are dry and she's spitting up large amounts of milk. I have a fairly regular diet so I don't think it's a reaction to something I have eaten - and I'm wondering if it's possible she's overfeeding? I read in the "Frequent Nursing or Snack Nursing" that it's not possible to overfeed a breastfed baby, but I'm still worried. She's fine for a while at the breast, then starts to get very frustrated, losing her latch over and over again, at which point I take her off - she usually spits up what must be half an ounce at that stage, and within twenty minutes will be cranky and inconsolable by anything other than being put back to the breast!
I will sit on the couch and let her snack away all day if that's what she needs, but I'm worried that she might be comfort feeding or over-feeding for some other reason...
