So, just as DS and I were getting bf'ing all figured out and things were going smoothly, he decided to change things up a bit and I need your help!!
DS is 18 days old. He's gained (hold on tight) 1 1/2 pounds since birth (according to his 2 week check up) so I know he's getting plenty to eat and things are going well
Now today, he's got me confused again.
He gives me all the signs he's hungry (rooting, hands in mouth, etc), but when I go to feed him, he latches on and nurses for about 2-3 minutes, then pulls off my breast. I burp him and relatch him, same thing, nurses for a few minutes and then pulls off. I don't have an overactive letdown (that I know of) and haven't eaten anything out of the ordinary, so I don't think my milk is turning him off.
After a bit, I give up trying to feed him and we walk around or rock for awhile, then he starts again with the hunger cues and we do it all over again.
He's been awake most of the day, happy and alert, not fussy. Normally he sleeps quite a bit, but today, no go.
What is going on with this kid?? Is this normal? Do I need to worry about my supply after only 1 day? Should I pump? What do I do?
My main concern is my supply. I don't want it to get all screwy on me. HELP!
