4 Week Old Baby Breastfeeding Schedule
I have 4 week old baby and am breastfeeding. Have noticed brown/blackish spots like freckles or moles on my areoles . What could these be?

My 6 week old baby sometimes cries & gets frustrated while breastfeeding or drinking from a bottle. He's hungry but seems like something is bothering him?
Yes: gas can be uncomfortable for newborns and can cause them to wake. However, 7 week olds may not be sleeping for other reasons as well. First question is how often is your baby sleeping.
