I remember Sam would cluster feed when I was nursing (up to 8 weeks), but Henry has been FF since birth.

how do i tell he needs to be fed more often. with sam, he only cluster fed at night when we were in bed.

Henry's been eating 3-6 oz every 2-3 hours. Even at 5 oz, he's wanting to be fed at 2.5 hours. Am I crazy?

I mean, he's not hurt, he's not wet/soiled, he'll take a paci briefly, he's sucking on his hands nonstop. Seems to be hunger issues right?

Could he be bored or restless?

I knew it was time to go up an ounce when the feedings started getting closer and closer together. First it went down to 2 hours, then every hour and a half. When I moved her up to 5 oz she was able to go 3-4 hours between feedings and was very happy and satisfied between feedings. No fussing at all.

Is he teething? I know he is very young still, but Kaylin sprouted he first tooth yesterday. She has been chewing on her hands like a maniac for about 3 weeks not.

Maybe he's just having a growth spurt.

That's so funny that Kaylin has a tooth already. Trinity is 2 months older than her and is still toothless.

Tyler has been acting the same way. He wants to eat, eat, eat. Plus he drools constantly. I've often wondered if he's teething. He chews on his little hands and fingers.

How long has he been wanting to eat more?

Could be a growth spurt.
