This may have been posted already but, I have a beautiful 7 1/2 week old boy who continues to fall asleep at the breast!!!!
He usually comes off satisfied, sometimes he fusses. I switch sides, massage, do skin to skin contact.
Is this going to be his pattern or do they improve? He feeds about every 2-21/2 hours during day and 3 - 4 hours at night.
He was slow to gain weight but, now gained 9 oz in 6 days.
Is this pattern due to him not absorbing the breastmilk, as he still gets 5 or more yellow seedy diapers/ day.
I have read the bowel movements can be infrequent or frequent. Is my baby behaving within a normal range. Thanks, a nervous first time MOM!!!
