Hi. I have a 4-week old son. I have been breastfeeding him right from the start after reading up a lot about it through pregnancy. My son shows all the textbook signs of being 'dissatisfied' at the breast. First, he never leaves the breast on his own. Mostly he falls asleep at it after 30-40 mins or so, after which I remove the nipple. Sometimes he wakes up after I remove it and keeps wanting more. If he remains asleep, I assume he has had his fill. So it is me who technically always ends thThe feeding sessions as a result go on for 1-1.5 hours, and he feels hungry again after 2-3 hours. The lactation consultant and doctor both told me that i should ignore all these things and look only at the urine output and weight gain. His urine output is good, and he passes bright yellow stools (at least 4-5 hearty ones) per day, and a big / small one almost after every feed. His weight gain has also been good - gaining 250 grams in the second week and 300 grams each in the third and fourth weeks. So my question is, why does he fuss so much at the feeds? Is he getting enough only because I let him go on for 1.5 hours? What should I do, as it is quite tiring to sit for 1.5 hours every 2 hours! Also this week he developed an oral thrush infection which I was afraid was because of the result of sucking at the nipple for such long hours daily. I would really appreciate your help / suggestions.
