Hi, this is my first post here!
Here is the story:
My son was born at 36w4d. He was a big baby. He regained his birth weight in a week, and has been gain9ng appropriately ever since. 55th for weight, but 97th for length. He did the 3 hour interval at the hospital, but after coming home and visiting a lc, she suggested every 2 at max to flush bili. He decided he liked every 1 1/2. night and day. Then he suddenly started sleeping longer stretches at night, and taking an afternoon nap. both have been lengthening.
He nursed for 30 min or so each side. For the past month He sleeps 6 hours or so, then feeds with me in bed until we get up, 8:30 or so. Aside from a 40 minute wake time in the a.m. and a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon, he will eat every hour, for at least 40 min on one side. At that point, I'll change him, potty myself/snack, and his little tongue will be going and he'll nurse the other side.
He has about 5 poops, and wet every time i change after a feeding. so a lot. we are going to an ent about a lip tie.
Is this normal? do i now count each side as a separate feed, instead of them together like before?
I feel like he hasnt progressed in efficiency. and what about play time? If i forego chores in the am, or a shower, he can play on the floor with me. otherwise he has to be in the swing to be safe (pets, and he doesnt like the infant bed of the playpen)
i yhink i need reassurance.
sorry- typing one handed
