Hi all! First time posting here... I've been reading the threads for a while but I decided to post and get help on my own issues.
My sweet LO is 6 weeks and 4 days and lately she's been real fussy at the breast at night. She pulls and pushes in, cries, grunts, and so on. She also latches and un latches several times.
She does not sleep good at all, she doesn't sleep during the day after I feed her, or maybe she sleeps for 10-15 minutes and wakes up. Last night I moved to the recliner and after I feed her, she slept on my chest, it was around 2am so I didn't want to put her in the sleeper where she usually wakes up after a few minutes as I said.
I am having trouble getting her to sleep at night too. The last couple of nights have been rough... and I'm concern cause I'm coming back to work next Monday!
As always, I'm concern that she's not getting enough milk to make her go to sleep after a feeding.
Also, she seems to want to eat every hour or so. And at night is like she's never satisfied. She keeps sucking her fingers and hands after I've nursed her for an hour! And the last few days I've probably nursed her for more than an hour. I know I should not time the sessions, but sometimes it concerns me that she wants to eat for too long and maybe over eat or I overfeed her. She usually spits up every time she eats for too long.
I went to my lactation consultant here and I started taking fenugreek cause my milk supply was low after being advised to feed my baby formula to make her have a stool after she was born
I'm still taking 2 pills 3 times a day.
Thanks for any help you can give me!!!
