My little guy is only 3 days old and so far nursing has been going okay, but I do have a few questions and hope someone can help me out ... I am very gassy and I think I am making baby gassy too. Is it okay for me to take Gas-X and nurse? Or should I just give my little guy some mylicon drops after feeding?
Also, I have been trying to nurse every 3 hrs, but baby doesn't seem to be too hungry. He will suckle for about 10 minutes and fall asleep. Other times he will nurse for 30 minutes....and then at the next feeding will not even be interested. I try to wake him up....tickle his chin, take off his clothes...but all he really wants to do is sleep. Should I be concerned? We have a Dr's appt tomorrow, so I will check with the pediatrician then, but I would appreciate any help you can give!
