So the past 2 days or so, Olivia has been pulling away from the breast after several minutes, and become pretty frustrated. I switch sides, and she's fine for a bit and then the same thing happens. She sometimes coughs a bit too. Could this be that my letdown is a little too much for her? If so, any suggestions or experience with how we can overcome this?
In other news, she's 8lbs already! She was weighed yesterday at 9 days old. She was born at 7lbs 9.5oz, and was 7lbs 2oz when we left the hospital. So she's definitely getting enough to eat!
Second... way to go on the nursing mama! My dd#1 was born at 7lbs 2oz and at her 1 week checkup weighed 8lbs 2oz. Some babies just put it on fast!
