Why is my lo nursing every hour?

My 12 week old daughter has been refusing to nurse very long but she wants eat every hour. She's also been spitting a lot. She's allergic to milk and soy plus takes prepaid twice a day. I just can't get anything done and dh is getting mad. How can I get here to eat more like she was? Thank you.

It is a growth spurt and she will level back out when she is done. This is normal, she is upping her supply. Tell DH he will live and if he wants something done, do it himself. This is an important phase. I rarely get much done with a nursling around. DH does it, as he knows the baby needs to eat and this is a short season.

Yup, standard growth spurt. Just nurse however she wants and it will slowly go back to normal. It's a phase Good luck!

Oh man my boobies are just so full. She's nursing now so hopefully she'll do both sides. She's been block nursing so I've been looking a little silly. Hopefully when she's done we can go to WALMART quick. I've been trying to go for days but LO had other ideas. It's about a 20 minute drive so I need her to be happy for it.

Because she's a baby very normal. She probably just is growing and needs the extra right now. It will calm down soon
