Re: The insatiable need to suck...?? What's happening?

He could be heading towards a growth spurt, often babies nearing a growth spurt will start suckling more often to prepare the supply so your body will start making what they're going to be needing. Or he could just be comforted by it. My son is a comfort sucker too, but has not and will not take a pacifier. When he was around 4-5 months he could nurse all afternoon and not drink, but just want the comfort. Now that he's 8 months old, he nurses to drink during the day, and still comfort nurses at night, but not nearly as much as he did when he was younger.
