Hello all! I'm a new breastfeeder, although not a new mother, and I'm not sure I know what I am doing! My little girl was born Sunday morning. She nursed beautifully in the labor and delivery room. Since then, it has been off and on again. I know we are both learning, but here is my question. She wants to sleep constantly. There is no waking her up every two hours to nurse. I have tried all the suggestions such as taking off her clother, changing her diaper, tickling her feet, having her do "sit ups", changing breasts etc. She nursed great this morning one time after sleeping ALL night and that has been it. Each time I try now, she make such one or two times and drifts right back to sleep no mater what I try. I can't see how she isn't hungry. She is having bowel movements and urinating so she must be getting somthing out the few times she has nursed well. But, here are my main questions:
1. How can she not be hungry by now? It's been two days. I'm scared she will dehydrate or something.
2. How is my milk supply every going to come in if she is nursing so seldom? Should I pump to make sure it comes in and hope she is more alert soon?
I appreciate any and all advise!!!
