Re: Baby Falling Asleep At Breast
Hi mama, what do you mean by "the remaining 5 minutes"? Are you expecting him to nurse for exactly 15 minutes each time?
How are his wets & poops? That's how you can tell if he's getting enough milk. If he is, then no need to pump at all - just nurse on demand (which means at his early cues for both when and how long). If you do that, your body will figure out how much he needs. Milk supply really gets established in the first 2 weeks, and gets regulated around 6 weeks or so, so you will very quickly stop feeling full.
If he doesn't have enough wets & poops each day, then we need to talk about how to get more milk in to him. Other suggestions for keeping him nursing are to tickle his feet, tickle his neck/jaw.
DS 6/7/11 - Still night & morning nursing, but the rest of the time he just doesn't have time for me! After mostly working at home, gleefully packed away the pump at 11 months.
Another on the way in October 2013!
