I have read that newborns usually have a pattern of 3-4 sucks and swallow. But mine sucks and swallows rapidly.
She seems to be getting about 2 ounces in 3-4 mts. How do I know this ? I testweighed her. Her weight increased about 3 ounces in 3-4 mts and that is about 2 fluid ounces of my BM.
Is this to be expected ?
I was told to nurse about 20 mts or so but we never get that far with just nursing. It does go on to be about an hour because she drops off after about a minute and is milk drunk, rolling eyes etc., and suddenly wakes up and does another minute or so and pops off again. This goes on for a while.
I am concerned my LO is not getting enough because she is constantly hungry if she is awake she wants to feed. Its an entirely different matter that even if she is hungry she does not latch on properly sometimes
