Hi All! My daughter was born on Sunday afternoon and we've been doing great breastfeeding (for the most part) until today... total meltdown. Here's what's happening... please any advice will help!!
From 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. today she ate almost every half hour. She had a 15 minute feed at 8:15 and a 20minute one of the other side at 9:10, but from that point on it would be only be about 5 minutes (or as little as 10 "sucks") and then she'd pass out dead to the world, wake up in 10-20 minutes, starving obviously, and do the same thing again. Finally, at about 1:15 she ate for a solid 20 minutes again and has been sleeping since (it's now almost 3 p.m.).
Is this normal? I know she's getting milk b/c I see it in her mouth and my breast does "go down" afterwards... is this just an adjustment stage? My milk just came in yesterday...
