Yes, I am a man, but my wife is still recovering from her c-section, and today is my daughter's first day at home, so I'm doing all the research I can on BF.
1) My wife's milk hasn't come in yet (baby's only 2 days old), and last night my daughter was acting really fussy and hungry all night. She fed almost every hour between 5 and 11, with the last feeding lasting an hour. After she was done, she was still fussy, so we asked the nursery what to do and they suggested supplementing with some sugar water, which i administered to her. (only a half-ounce) and she fell right to sleep. She's been ok ever since, but seems reluctant at times to wake up and feed. I know that colostrum is supposed to hold her over until the milk comes in, but my daughter is 8 lb 12 oz (at birth) and seems to be unsatisfied. What do we do until her milk comes in?
2) If my daughter doesn't want to wake up and feed, do we let her sleep, or wake her up, and what are some good techniques to do this?
3) My daughter hasn't had a poopy diaper since 4 am Thursday morning (born 9:39 Wednesday). I'm thinking she might not be getting enough to eat, and the pediatrician says she's a bit jaundiced. What do we do to tide her over 'till milk gets here?
Sorry if the questions are redundant. Remember, I'm only a man...heh.
