My 8 day old, late-pre-term baby needs encouragement to stay at the breast. I try to keep her going for 20 minutes on each side at daytime feelings*, though I could probably keep her going longer with increased prodding. How do I know when we've reached the point of diminishing returns & I should just let her sleep? I'm particularly interested in getting enough hind-milk in her to help her gain some weight!
*At night she cluster feeds with short sessions of 10 or 15 minutes and then, maybe, half an hour of resting. If feeds are that close together is she getting fore milk or hind milk?
