We are breastfeeding with what I feel is good success. My DS is latching on well- at least i think he is (no sore nipples or pain and his mouth/lips look right).
He is still very new- 10 days old, but we are feeding every two to three hours pretty much on cue- sometimes I have to wake him.
My questions are:
1. How do I know when he is "done" with a particular side? He usually falls asleep or his latch loosens. I burp him and try to latch him on again and sometimes he resists and others he latches on again.
2.We have been working on getting my milk supply regulated and I know it takes some time- I have oversupply that lets down very strongly and he sometimes frets and struggles at first- latching on again and again. We are currently trying to feed from one side during a feeding and the other side at the next feeding- which seems to be helping. He is latching on longer and eating longer- which I take as a good sign- right?
How will I know when to start offering both sides again?
Any other insight advice would be most helpful- TIA!
