Re: Refusing breast
If baby is still producing adequate wet and poopy diapers, and you are not in pain when nursing, then your supply is fine and the long feedings are normal. There's often a big growth spurt at around 6 weeks, so that could account for some of what you are seeing. However, if the baby's diaper output is low- particularly urine output, since at 6 weeks poop output may have slowed down a lot, to as little as 1 x per week- then it's time to troubleshoot and probably to see the doc. A baby who refuses th breast is sometimes a hurting baby, so you'd want to get your LO's ears checked for infection.
