Re: Nighttime feeding question
Eating a lot at night is perfectly normal at this point. It's pretty much impossible to try and organize feeding times with a babe this young. But it won't last forever, I promise. You are doing the exact right thing nursing in bed, that's the best way to get sleep with a baby who nurses a lot at night. Can you pull baby onto your chest and lay back to let him nurse on the right? Or even roll to your other side with him? That might not feel great with the c-section incision either. Or maybe you could pull a pillow up under him to prop him up to reach your top boob? You wouldn't want to fall asleep like that, though, it's not as safe for baby.
Really, if none of that works it's not a huge deal especially if, like you said, you balance it out at other feedings. Again, one of those things that won't last too long. The incision will start to feel better in the next couple of weeks and that won't be so much of an issue.
Congrats on your baby!
