Need Hlp for my sister, baby is 3 days old
and she will latch, suck for a minute and pull off. My sister has started supplementing a little because when she called to ask the LC about her problems, she told her to supplement because the baby had to eat every 4 hours not matter what. She was born at 8 pounds 10 ounces, and yesterday she was 8 pounds 6 ounces.
She has only had 2 wet diapers today, she won't really drink the formula either.
They have a ped appt tomorrow, and an appointment with an LC.
I told her to just keep latching her on, even when she stops sucking, re latch her. I think my sis is getting discouraged though, and I don't know how to help.
