fussed and cried after eating

by Lisa

My baby (5 weeks) often fussed and cried after eating, I found out that if I walked around with him upright he calmed down, effective but tiring.

Then it occurred to me that I often had him laying on his belly on my chest after feeding, maybe his belly hurt, so I tried him on his back propped slightly up on a pillow and viola!

He stopped crying and fell right asleep. Worth a try since it's so easy. A volunteer from La Leche League international said that limiting feedings was a bad idea, baby should be fed whenever he shows signs of hunger, no matter how often, eating between every 1-3hrs is normal if breastfeeding.
