Re: Tiny newborn too sleepy...small mouth
Diaper output sounds good. Has baby passed all her meconium yet?
Nursing frequency is totally normal. I'd like to swat that nurse who said baby should only nurse every 2 hours- who knows how many breastfeeding relationships she has derailed with her "helpful" advice.
Some pain in the early days is normal. But the pain should not persist throughout the feeding, be so great that it makes you cry or scream, or result in damage to the nipple. If you're blistered, bleeding, or cracking, please seek help from a LC IMMEDIATELY. This is especially true for moms of small babies- a small mouth can have great difficulty latching onto a large (relative to the baby) breast.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
