Hi all! I'm relatively new to the board and just had my second daughter on Jan 17. She is adorable and has known the difference between day and night for about two weeks now.
My daughter loves to feed all morning (I get about a 20 minute break every hour) and about every hour and half to two for lunch and dinner. But she only wakes for one feeding a night if at all. I sometimes wake up very full and sore but that definitely goes away after the morning feed. She started out cluster feeding right at birth because she fell asleep at the breast and I would have to wake her. Now she will stop but only for a few seconds to a minute at best. Is this normal? I also sometimes feel like she isn't getting enough even though she has plenty of dirty and wet diapers and has also gained a good amount of weight.
Her doctor has suggested that I either give her vitamins every day or give her some formula on a daily basis (like a bottle feeding everyday). She says that it's a good idea for supplements if a baby is either almost exclusively breast fed or is exclusively breast fed.
Has anyone run into this with vitamins or the feeding schedule? It's hard to get anything besides feeding her done. I feel bad because I sometimes can't even put on a day outfit for her until it's the afternoon and it's the same with bath time-- real hard to make a schedule for that too. I look forward to chatting with all of you!
