Re: Advice/Encouragement Needed!
Welcome to the forum!
Now that your baby is 38 weeks, you're probably a lot closer to the time when he really wakes up and starts mastering the art of breastfeeding. Early term babies are still often quite sleepy, and some babies who are born at term are also sleepy- my firstborn was pretty sleepy for the first week or so, and she was born at 39w5d.
Some questions for you:
-Have you seen a lactation consultant?
-How often does baby nurse?
-Is baby being swaddled or given a pacifier?
-Does baby doze off while nursing?
-How has weight gain been so far?
-How much supplement are you giving the baby?
-Can you describe how you are giving the supplement?
-How is pumping going?
