I swear my son is a little piglet. He will eat and eat and eat and won't stop. He will keep eating til he spits up everywhere and I have to take the bottle or boob away. Its always smack in the dead of the night he wants to pull this stunt. He drank 5 oz of breast milk and started hiccuping which he always does cause he eats way to fast and that's followed with the spit up everywhere and yet if I take the bottle or boob away he flips out and acts like he's starving and like he hasn't ate at all. He will seriously nurse for over an hour and still want more. I also supplement a few ounces a day as no matter how hard Itry and how many times I pump I always seem to not be able to entirely keep up with his demand. And he does this same thing even with formula.
He isn't a gassy baby. He doesn't seem to have reflux. He poops like a champ. But here it is 3:30 am and he won't let me sleep cause he's acting like he's starving and I know he's not. He was up 2 pounds at his 2 week checkup. Seriously. When we left the hospital the day after he was born he was down from 7.2 to 7 pounds even. 2 week checkup he was 9 pounds already.
I have bounced him and rocked him and walked with him. Even put him in the ring sling and walked around in an attempt to get him to sleep yet he's wide awake and still acting starving. Every night! I'm at a loss. Nothing works when he gets like this except to let him eat til he throws it all up and then he's hungry again. As I have tried a few times to see if I just let him eat til he's full and that resulted in him eating over 6 oz then spit up and repeat. What the heck is going on? DD never did this. And besides this weird quirk he is an extremely easy baby. Anyone else have a LO that's a little piglet? Oh and no pacifiers don't work...those get spit out.

Does he maybe just want to comfort suck? Have you tried a paci? I feel you -Bourne was like that all the time

Ellianna is eating too much - due to reflux. When the acd comes up, she wants to eat to soothe the acid. This results in a cycle. The doc is having me limit her. He said at this age her belly can hold 2 1/2 to 3 ounces and then it will just result in vomit.

We have days/nights like that. I'm sorry Hun. I would think he just wants to comfort suck. What pacifiers have you tried? He may just not like whichever one(s) you've tried.

Maybe I will try a different paci and see if that works as he definitely does not like the one he has. He has such a vigorous suck that it always comes flying right out anyway and if that doesn't work I will make his pediatrician check him for reflux.

With pacifiers I usually have to hold them in place for a bit for him to get a rhythm. He usually spits it out a few times first

Karry - I really hope he does not have reflux. It is so hard to know if it is a growth spurt (with real hunger) or something else.

Anna will eat and eat and eat in the evenings..like she's gearing up for the night. We have to be really careful or it all just comes back up but if we don't give it to her she screams..then she spits up and screams...then wants more...This is one reason we're going to the doctor to check for reflux, among others. She also doesn't like the paci much. She's getting better with it, but not enough that it really helps. She usually figures out that she's not getting food within the first few minutes and just screams some more.

I hope it's just a growth spurt like someone else said and not reflux.

Charlotte was doing this around the 2-3 week mark. I finally found that she would take the soothie brand paci (though I have to hold it for her and sometimes she still won't take it). I also have to be very active in burping her, even if she doesn't like it. We tried reflux med, but she would vomit 5 minutes after taking it every time, so I stopped after a week. It's slowly getting better, but I still do tons of laundry. lol

I actually just bought two different types of pacis for him. I got the Soothie ones and the Gumdrop ones. He actually seems to like both so I am hopeful that it may work during his nighttime witching hours and if it doesn't work then I will schedule an appt with his ped
