My son is 11 days old today and I need help! My best friend's mother is a lactation consultant that lives about 4 hours away. I called her on day three for help and she told me to feed him every time he acted hungry which at times was almost hourly. Then at the pediatrician's office on day 5 she said to feed not more than every 2 hours, preferably every 3. I could usually distract him for this long until last night when I broke down and fed him almost every hour which was exhausting as it takes at least 30 minutes to feed him.
Now today he is acting almost constantly hungry despite plenty of wet/dirty diapers. I'm exhausted and confused. Can anyone offeradvice?
