Re: A few questions about 5 week old nursing
With such a young baby, it's pretty much impossible to separate "hungry" from "just need to suck". Babies that age have a really high need for food- they're growing faster than they ever will again in their entire lives, particularly during growth spurts- and they also have a high need for close physical contact, warmth, and sucking. So the two states overlap. Luckily, you cannot overfeed a breastfed baby, so it really doesn't matter if you feed nonstop. Not for the baby, anyway. You may get pretty tired out! But believe me, this is a temporary situation and pretty soon- maybe in a few weeks, maybe in a few months, depending on your baby- you will find that your baby's interest in the world around her will increase and the constant nursing will decrease. I still remember the day my firstborn discovered her own toes, at around 4.5 months of age. All of a sudden I could put her down for 5 minutes at a time and walk away- and she was okay with that because she had these amazingly fascinating things stuck to the ends of her feet!
Restless sleep is pretty normal. There's no harm in latching baby on before she exhibits late hunger cues like crying, but there's also no harm in waiting to see if baby is really hungry or just going through a phase of lighter sleep, so I think what you do about a stirring but not waking baby is up to you. Particularly since your baby has good diaper output and weight gain.
Breast implants will not make your milk come out faster. The major problem with implants is that they can in some cases cause issues with supply and slow flow- certain types of surgery are more problematic than others. That doesn't sound like you, though, since your baby is gaining well and having normal diaper output! It's pretty normal for babies to have a "Goldilocks" mentality about nursing- they don't want their milk to come out too fast or too slow. They want it just right. The best thing you can do for a Goldilocks baby is to allow her to learn how to manage milk flow all by herself. Let her figure out how to deal with the flow when it's fast (by changing her suckling speed, breaking suction, etc.) and also when it's slow (by nursing more enthusiastically, sucking harder, etc.). I really don't think you want to do block feeding unless you are absolutely sure you have oversupply, and the oversupply is causing problems for you and baby.
Pumping 1-2 oz at a time is normal. Remember that breastfed babies typically take just 2-4 oz of milk at a time throughout their first year, compensating for the small amount of milk in a feeding by feeding very frequently. Are you pumping in addition to feeding, or instead of feeding? And what sort of pump do you have?
