My little guy loves to drink air bubbles. He is gaining good, good diaper output and he is almost 8 weeks.
I am thinking it is his latch? Since day one he hasn't opened his mouth very big. His top lip also folds in a bit.
I can kind of pull his lip up and his suck is really strong, so once he gets on he has a large amont of areola in his mouth, but he still gets some bubbles in there.
He is a great baby (besides his evening fussy time I mentioned before).
Anyone else have a bubble drinker or have any tips?
Should I pump at night? He has seven to nine feeds in 24 hours. After his fussy time (during which he only nurses once or twice due to not being a comfort nurser) he will sack out for 4 to 5 hours sometimes. He also sometimes feeds one side at a time. This means that one side can go 6 to 8 hours before being nursed on. Do you think I should pump? Supply seems fine, but looking for some second opinions.
