Re: baby taking hour+ to eat, still hung
The more times during the day you nurse, the more milk your body produces. late night/ early morning feeds are important for maintaining an ample supply.Your baby and you might benefit from squeezing in a 9 pm, and/or a 12 am,and/or a 2 am,and/or a 4 am feeding.
if your lo is consistently taking 40+ minutes per feed that is an indication of suboptimal milk transference.
do you think her plagiocephaly is impacting her ability to nurse?
are you using a breast shield to help the nipple protrude in between feedings or are you wearing a nipple shield that is worn over the nipple while feeding? The nipple shield can have a negative impact on the amount of milk the breasts produce by interrupting the stimulation of the nerve endings on the areola.
