I have three kids...just had the third a week ago. This is the first time I have stuck to breastfeeding longer than 3 days. I have made it to day 8 and I'm about to give up again :-( I don't want to though. Feeding is frustrating! He sleeps ALOT. Lastnight he slepts 5 hours straight before wanting to feed. Then he fell asleep after feeding for only 20 minutes and I couldn't get him to stay awake. I'm so worried about his weight gain which he isn't gaining like the Dr. wants and the Dr. is concerned too. Why does he sleep so much?? And why can't I get him to stay awake long enough to get what he needs? I have tried tickling, rubbing, talking to him...nothing works.
Also, why does my milk look clear or barely white? At first it was white but after a day it turned. Is this bad?
