So my son is 9 days old and I have some questions:
So, my son has been a BIG sleeper. He will regularly go 4-6 hours between feedings. I am still feeding around 8 times a day and he is having the normal amounts of wet and poopy diapers.
I feel like I need to wake him to feed him but my mom says never wake a sleeping baby and I know part of growing is getting plenty of sleep....Help, what do you think?
Bfing is going okay....Im still really sore but I guess that is to be expected. I am only feeding one side at each feeding because 1. I am concerned that he get the hind milk at each feeding and 2. he tends to fall asleep and so I work to keep him up to get a good amount of time on the breast. So far I havent had a whole lot of engorgement pain except for the first day, heres hoping.
I hope you have a great mothers day!
