My daughter Mya is a week old today. She seems to be a colicky baby... fussy and won't sleep, crying, needing constant comfort measures and breif periods of nursing for about 3 straight hours each night, somewhere between the hours of 10pm and 3am. After she finally falls asleep, she'll usually wake for one more nite feeding then sleep soundly until morning. After her 7 or 8 am feeding she sleeps...long and hard. I am lucky to get her to wake up after 4 hours then after nursing she falls asleep again for another 4 hour or more bout.... If I try to wake her to feed after 2 - 2.5 hrs, she takes 2 sucks and promptly falls deeply asleep again. If I continue to try to rouse her she becomes very worked up and won't nurse because she is so mad... if she finally relents and latches on, she again falls deeply asleep after 2 or 3 sucks.
This is terribly compounding the severe engorgement I have been experiencing and I am so sleep deprived I barely know what to do. Please help with any suggestions you may have.
Thanks in advance.
