Comfort nursing or actually hungry?


I think I may have started a habit with my almost 8-week old...

Since the beginning she had been a terrible napper in the day, and I’d just give her the boob to calm her down. Fast forward to today, her last nap was at 10am and it’s 6pm with multiple “feeding” sessions in between to keep her calm at times, I’m talking about every hour.

Now I’m wondering if she truly is hungry or just sucking out of comfort.

Should I be feeding on demand like this and or should I be giving her breaks and start other soothing techniques?

Mommies who bottle feed, I doubt you’re giving them a new bottle every hour, how do you cope with the fussy awake times?

I know she’s getting more than enough milk giving me at least 10+ wet diapers a day..
