My husband and I are first time parents with our daughter, Jordyn, who is 12 days old. Things started off pretty good, she was eating about every 4 hours and sleeping great in between. The last two days, especially today, have been a nightmare! Today she seems to want to eat constantly. She will spend about 20-30 minutes on one breast, fall asleep, then wake up a half hour later and act like she is starving. A few times she nursed for less than 10 minutes and fell asleep, basically using me as a pacifier.
Got ideas of what went wrong so suddenly? Is it harmful for her to be nursing so much? Any ideas of how to cope would be greatly appreciated.
