Really worried about supply.
Chloe is a little over 5 weeks old and it feels like she is CONSTANTLY going through a growth spurt, she's cluster feeding constantly, and she'll attempt to eat off from both sides and fuss while at them, usually I can get her to eat about 10-15 minutes before she gets so frustrated and doesn't want to anymore, and even then I'll put my hand on her cheek to see if she's still hungry and snap at it like she's starving and start crying, I'm drinking mothers milk tea, and I know her eating constantly is the best way to boost my supply but I don't think it's increasing to her demands. What do I do? I don't want to supplement but I can't let her starve in this process. Any input :(?

My daughter went though that stage a week or so ago. I just kept feeding her until she stopped wanting to b feed every so often.  I also think my daughter's growth spurt slowed down. Sorry if I wasn't much help

My daughter ia going through that now. I get frustrated because she will push away from my breast but she gets fussy and shoves her little hands in her mouth. I feel she is just confused and doesn't know what she wants, lol. I now juat give her the binky and she goes to sleep. so now just figured she probably is sleepy. I read when they do that they are either tired, bored,  or sleepy. And putting their hands in their mouth is soothing for babies, doesn't always mean they are hungry.

She doesn't put her hands near her mouth, but my LC told me to see if she's hungry by brushing her cheek with my finger and see if she reacts to it like she's hungry, and she always does! Hopefully this growth spurt ends soon!
