I am wondering if I should be worried about my DD. She is 10 weeks old, and has never wanted to nurse very frequently. Used to be about every 3 hours, with a very long stretch over night. Lately, she has started going every 4-5 hours during the day, and about 6-7 hours at night. If I try to feed her more often, she gets upset/screams. I know that breastmilk is digested quickly and its really worrying me that she goes so long between feeds, but there's nothing I can do to make her eat. My supply is fine - actually have an oversupply I have not been able to rectify, and I've been very engorged lately, as I only feed one side per feed and with these infrequent feeds one side goes a long time without stimulation. We usually wind up with about 5 feeds per 24 hours, which again seems low to me. I am just wondering if this could be in the range of normal.
We've had challenges all along b/c of my oversupply - choking, sputtering, lack of comfort nursing. I know she doesn't always enjoy nursing which of course makes me sad.
Oh, we're getting about 5-6 wet diapers a day, poopy every 1-2 days.
Thanks for any help...you ladies are so knowledgable, thought I'd throw out a question.
