    6-9 Witching hours?

    It seems that all my newborn does is scream from 6-9 at night. I have been breastfeeding and it seems that he just wants a bottle (very slowly) during those hours. If I try to bf him from 6-9PM he screams. If we give him a bm bottle then he just sucks on it very slowly and when you try to pull it out of his mouth he freaks. I don't want to mess up the bfing relationship by giving him the continuous bottle from 6-9???? He refuses a pacifier. HELP!!!!

    Griffin wants to cluster feed in the evenings too. He likes to have several small feeds every 45 min or 1 hour until his bed time. I enjyo thsi time with him and do not plan anything in the evenings as I know he relies solely on me for this!

    Good Luck!

    Both of mine were cluster feeders in the evening, too. Strange about the preference for the bottle over the boob, though. I was going to recommend a pacifier, but sounds like that won't work. Maybe you could give him a small amount in the bottle, then when it is gone, let him nurse????

    For my dd it's more about the comfort at that time of day hence I carry her around in the sling with me.
