My baby is 2 weeks old today and we have been using the nipple shield since the hospital because of her latch. I want her to be weaned off nipple shield and so I have been trying the past 2 days---I can eventually get her to latch on to my breast but she will only eat for about 9 minutes on one side and then pull off and fall asleep. I tried feeding her every 2 hours or earlier if she is hungry but I'm worried it's not enough---any advice on how to get her to eat more and eat from both sides?
She is still having wet and poopy diapers. Just want to know if this is normal for a 2wk old trying to breastfeed---just want her to get enough and keep my supply enough.
