I have a 9 week old. In the beginning we had lots of breastfeeding issues. She had a tt (which we had clipped), I had an infection, she had a large decrease in weight and then very slow weight gain. After lots of work I am finally really happy with breastfeeding. At her last appointment she had moved up to the 56th percentile for weight- I'm so happy I didn't give up.
There is one part though that I'm still confused about. It takes her 45-60 minutes to feed each time. I'm wondering if I'm missing the cues that she is actually done. I read that they are done when they pull off the breast - but she doesn't ever do that. Typically I end it and break the latch when she is full on sleeping. There are sometimes throughout the feeding where it seems like she is getting drowsy and her tongue is just fluttering so I try to stop and she gets mad and then picks up the pace and starts sucking more again. Sometimes she does multiple sucks before actually swallowing - is this a sign that she is done?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
