Re: Need help with my 3.5 week old
A baby who is gaining weight and nurses every two hours, 10 minutes on one side only and then nurses two hours later on the other side
Is doing great!
My DD2 did that with one marathon session/day at about 5 -8pm of non stop nursing. Otherwise she was all business done at the breast after 10 minutes and then she sucked her thumb.
If your baby has regained his birthweight and has added some extra ounces per week you are doing fine.
I know sore nipples are troublesome, I've had that experience too.
But my soreness improved with time so I stayed the course.
