I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 6 day old. At night, she's been falling asleep/rejecting the breast after a good amount of time but then showing signs of hunger after we change her diaper and try to put her to sleep. Pattern is like this:
Takes breast 1 for 20/25 minutes
I burp her
Put her on breast 2
When she falls asleep or stops eating, I burp her (usually after 10 mins).
She eats more, falls asleep, I burp her again until after several attempts, she doesn't eat.
My husband takes her to change her diaper and put her down. She then cries/shows signs of hunger so I have to take her to feed her again. She eats and falls asleep for good.
I've been unswaddling and sometimes taking off her clothes to keep her from falling asleep. She usually goes 2.5-3 hours between feedings and when she eats I hear swallowing and think I have a good latch.
Is this pattern just the way it is? Is she comfort feeding? Anything I should try doing differently?
