Ready for a Nanny!!!

Well, the honeymoon's over & Brody is officially a "real" baby! We were so convinced that things would be different this time, but I'm thinking the next 3 months are going to be pretty hard. ;o( Don't get me wrong its not quite as bad as when Addison was a baby, but at some points I feel as though things aren't looking good for us.
I was trying so hard to stay positive and look on the bright side of things, but the last 2 days have really put a damper on my cheerful side.
I have no idea what else I can feed this baby because he constantly wants to nurse. I've been against giving him formula, but I took the plunge today and gave him a bottle that you normally would get in the hospital, well the kid still wanted my boob after he finished that. Uggg, I hate this feeling of not knowing. He's burping fine, has lots of poop and pee. We did notice that it seems like he might have some air bubbles while I'm feeding him so I went out and got some gas relief medicine. I just can't believe how much this kid can eat. It seems like I'll nurse him for a good 30-40 minutes, he'll fall asleep and I'll burp him on my shoulder and as soon as he wakes up not even 15 minutes later he's fussy and ready to eat again. Of course I went on the Internet to see what google had to say and people think he's going through a growth spurt...REALLY he's not even 2 weeks old!!
Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't develop colic like Addison and perhaps this is just a phase. I don't know what I'm thinking considering my husband has the worst stomach in the world. As I said before I want to stay positive, but when your functioning on 3-4 hours of sleep its hard to do that. I'm pretty much pissed at the world but hey...I have a beautiful baby boy!
