Hello - I finally have overcome all the initial bfing questions from nipple pain to latch problems, but now I have some random questions if anyone can provide some insight...
My daughter is 3.5 weeks old.
1) Many times she's so sleepy at night that she's not able to get a burp out. Is that okay? She seems to grunt a little when I put her down to sleep, but she'll eventually settle into deeper sleep.
2) Does spitting up mean she's eating too much and she's done with the feeding session -- therefore no need to offer up the second breast? I usually work hard to wake her up enough get her to take the second breast and i'm wondering if I should even go through all the trouble if she's already spit up some of the milk from the first breast?
3) If I nurse on one side and switch breasts, sometimes the first breast she nursed on is still leaking.. does that mean she didn't "empty" out the first breast good enough?
Thanks to anyone who has some thoughts... :eyebrow
