Hi there, this is my first post. I've really enjoyed reading posts on this site, comforts me to know that other women are going through/experiencing the same things.
My son Owen is 3 weeks and 4 days, not worried about his weight 11 lbs already, and diapers and feeding are going well, just curious about this nibbleing he has been doing, he eats , sucking rhythmically and then it tapers off into nibbles while he's falling asleep, but he keeps nibbbling for a long long time and if I try to pull him away, he wakes up and sucks hard again. Is he actually getting milk while he is doing the nibbles? or is it more of a comfort thing?
Next question is about night time feeding, we are co-sleeping..only way we can get some rest, wake up about 3 times during night to feed him (lying down)
My question is..should I maybe go and sit down on the sofa and try to feed him, would he get more milk that way if it was a more thorough feeding?
and perhaps sleep longer?
And would you say when he is pulling himself off and grunting that he might want to switch to the next boob???
he's doing it right now!!! i'm going to try switching
