Yesterday and last night my 3 week old son has been feeding poorly, I think. He will nurse for about 8-10 minutes, and then need to burp, fall asleep, or something else, and then when I try to have him eat more, he cries. I am trying every conceivable position to feed him in. I think he is in pain when I try to feed him more. But I just don't think 10 minutes is enough? I think maybe he is having a bad day/night with reflux, but am also concerned its the paci/nipple confusion. But I don't think that would lead to crying? He will take the paci sometimes because hes able to be in whatever position he wants to suck it.
I noticed that it also affected his sleep last night. Or maybe it was the reflux that affected his sleep. Any tips on breastfeeding?
His diaper output for wets/dirties is totally fine, btw. His weight gain has been fine up to his 2 week check up, but we weren't having those feeding issues.
Should I just accept the amount he eats, but wake him more often to feed?
