I'm new here and hoping for some advice. My 3 week old daughter has been gaining over an ounce a day since we left the hospital and has an "ok" latch (we're still working on it, but it's getting better). She's definitely getting enough to eat because she's gaining weight and having more than enough dirty diapers.
The thing I'm concerned about is that she will only nurse from one side at a time per feeding. And even then, she only eats for 10 MABYE 15 minutes at a time before she passes out again. I know everybody says "just wake her up and get her to eat the other side." But most of the time she truly will not wake up to eat again for 2 more hours. We've tried a wet washcloth, getting her naked, etc. She eats every 2-3 hours during the day and 3-4 hours at night.
Is this "one-sided feeding" going to hurt or or my milk supply in any way? So far it seems like I still have plenty of milk when she's ready for the other side at the next feeding, but I'm worried that this might be a bad pattern to get her into.
Any help would be great!
