Hungry but not crying?
(Sydney, nsw, australia)
My 11week old when asleep at night goes through periods where he sucks loudly his hands & moves his legs and arms around a lot but doesn't open his eyes.
I have been getting him and feeding him thinking he's hungry and he sucks for 7 minutes and then stills so I put him back in the cot asleep.
Last night I left him sucking & moving and he never cried and was happy in morning.
Is he hungry or not? Should I leave him or not?
Would he eventually cry if he really was hungry?
He's an exceptionally happy easy baby and never really cries except when I put him to sleep - and I usually offer him the breast at this point and he always sucks for 20 min or so then sleeps. He is also sleeping in his cot in our room.
