Re: Baby not eating! Help!!
First of all: don't panic. As long as baby is producing adequate wet diapers, he is getting enough even if he's nursing very quickly or relatively infrequently. If it's coming out, you know it went in.
Second, before you start to really worry, keep a careful eye on feedings. A 7 week old baby should be feeding at least 8 times a day. Anything less than that and you want to start pushing him to nurse.
Third, as long as baby continues to produce adequate diapers and to nurse at least 8 times a day, don't worry about fast feedings. Babies usually become faster feeders after they have been nursing for a while, often capable of getting a full meal in just a few minutes at the breast. And as long as diaper output is okay, stay away from the pump, because you don't need it. Getting 4 oz very rapidly indicates that you have plenty of milk. It's normal to no longer feel "full" or engorged after you have been nursing a while, since milk production adjusts so that supply meets demand very precisely, without a lot of extra left over.
