My LO is almost 4 weeks and I thought we were doing so good. We had a not-so-good start when he was born 2 weeks earlier and with a bit of bili and weight loss (from 7.0 lbs at birth to 6.9 lbs the next day). I had to supplement with a couple of bottles b/c he wasn't latching on correctly. My nipples got soooo sore and even bleed, it was horrible, I cried every single time he nursed for the first 10 days or so. Now, we're doing much better, my nipples have healed and I think we both learned how to latch :) He gained 8 oz the second week!!! :)
But since yesterday, he's only nursing for 5 or 6 minutes and on one side only! Before he would nurse for 10 minutes on one, and maybe 4 or 5 more on the other (sometimes); and every hour and a half during the day, and every 3 hrs at night. I have very big boobs (38 DD) if that has something to do with it...
Is this something that -also- shall pass??
