Re: New mom in need of help
Yes, definitely okay! As you get more comfortable, you'll be able to tell if she is actively eating or just comfort sucking. Both are good for your supply though, so I would not limit the comfort sucking either. That part sometimes gets me frustrated, because I want to be doing other things - and I am stuck for long stretches of time. Right now, your most important job is feeding your baby though... so you just need to make yourself comfortable... get a good book, computer, TV, etc.
