My son is 9 days old and hes not sleeping between feeds. If i put him down sleepy after eating, he wakes up and kicks around. I think he has problems getting through the sleep cycles. About once a day, he has one long nap (I think he is just so tired out) I'd been waking him from this sleep after 3 hours to feed him, but do you think its ok to stop doing that since he doesnt sleep other than that (including night time) The additional problem is, he still wants to suck to soothe himself. So basically he is awake, suckling, between feeds. How do I know he's getting enough milk and when his true feeds are? I was giving him a pacifier for sucking, but was scared about my milk supply etc. My breasts have not leaked at all. They were engorged on the 5th day, and he is having lots of wet and poopy diapers. Most of the diapers have been green, which I read is from not getting to the hindmilk. How can I ensure he gets to the hindmilk when he wants to suck all day? Last night I thought I wanted to express milk and bottle feed just so I know hes getting the good milk. Is this going to improve? I'm so tired and I want to do whats best for him.
