My baby is one week old and nursed great in the hospital. Since my milk has come in, however, she will only nurse for five to ten minutes on usually one side only. I was told that she needs to do at least ten minutes on one side. She seems satisfied with what she is doing, and she continues to have as many wet/dirty diapers. Since I am engorged, could it be that she is getting a lot at once? I've tried different holds, wiping her with a cool cloth, etc., but she is just sleepy!
Just looking for reassurance as to how often to nurse (more or less frequently than every 2.5 hours) and how long nurse her on each breast (OK to do one side only or must we do both?) in order to move ahead correctly.
