My babe and I have gone through a lot, but he is now 3 weeks old and Exclusively breast fed which is a goal of mine. However, he used to always drink for at least 15-20mins. Now he sometimes will only drink for like 5-8 minutes. Sometimes he will fall asleep. I will try all the typical things to wake him up, rubbing his foot with a wash cloth or wipe, undressing him, changing his diaper, rubbing his ears, nudging his chin, compressing my breast.
Sometimes he will drink for hours on end, so I'm confused. I'm concerned because he was having to go to the drs often for weight checks and I dont want him to fail to gain weight or lose weight. Can someone give me some insight on this?
