    Re: Need some understanding!

    have you tried switch nursing? some babies are impatient so every few minutes switch sides to get the baby full. You can also try breast compressions to get your LO to stay on one side longer. HTH!

    Re: nursing all the time/pops off

    sounds like a growth spurt 3 weeks is a perfect time. I wouldn't worry if her pee/poo output is good. She is just trying to tell your body to make more milk b/c she is growing!

    Re: draining the breast?

    If your LO has plenty poos/pees I wouldn't worry at any given time your breast will have aproxx 25% milk in it so its technically never empty! The things we learn about our bodies!!! HTH!
