how long per feeding?
new mom, again!
so, my now one week old had been nursing for 10-20 minutes per breast per feeding. my breasts are now very full almost all the time...to the point of almost painful. now...he only nurses 8-10 minutes per breast and sometimes only stays awake long enough for one breast per feeding! is this ok? he is still getting over his jaundice and sometimes doesn't wake up (even if i try to help him) for 2 1/2 hours or more. i want to embrace feeding only on cue, but am nervous he will not get enough. i have fears due to my older son's experience...he was diagnosed "failure to thrive" at 9 months until he was 2. i just want my boy to be getting enough!
thanks for your help!
