My LO is two weeks old today. I had to initially use nipple shields because of nipples that wanted to disappear when he tried to latch. We were able to breast feed very well with them and I know that i got my supply up and running at the beginning. Of course, i have tried to wean him off the shields and to the breast which has worked very well. I felt the shields served their purpose and have completely breast feed him without the shields all day yesterday and today. Today, though, he has been wanting to feed every two hours and sometimes it seems like while he is sucking i don't hear the swallowing. I have checked his latch and all parts are in the right place. Tonight I just finished letting him suck for quite a while and he started getting fussy and pulling at me. Once finished he seemed to be rooting again like he was still hungry! i am not leaking like I was and I honestly can't tell if my breasts are full before or inbetween feedings. I had engorgement when my milk came in last week but that has subsided. Are these things that should still be happening? I'm afraid that now I'm not producing enough. i can still get milk to come out when i check them, but i don't understand why he would still act hungry? He has had wet and dirty diapers all day long. If my production is slowing, when would i notice this in his diapers? I desperately want to continue breastfeeding and want to catch any problems early on!
