I have a few problems - maybe. First, my son, born 12/14 so he's 2 weeks 5 days old, often seems to want to nurse only 8-10 minutes per side per feeding, or wants to spend 20 minutes on one side and isn't interested in the other. He has plenty of wet and dirty diapers and had regained his birth weight at 1 week 5 days old. He seems to want to eat every 1.5 to 2 hours. I'm worried he's not getting enough hind milk because he's not spending long enough on the breast. He falls asleep during feedings, but even if I do manage to wake him up, he simply refuses to latch again.
My other problem - at the hospital I seemed to have a fine latch. But now that we're at home I'm not so sure. Often when I'm feeding him I notice a lot of milk draining down my breast and side. Is it normal to lose milk while nursing? Does this mean his latch is actually wrong? It happens especially when I'm trying to coax him to continue nursing after he has slowed down or stopped.
Part of me wants to just believe that if he has wet and dirty diapers, he's fine, but another part of me is just so anxious over whether he's eating enough. Thank you all for any reassurance or advice you might have.
