matthia- the only two things I can think of that others haven't suggested are that being even slightly jaundiced can make a baby more sleepy, so make sure he is getting plenty of sunlight for vitamin D, and also, perhaps try a different position? My DD will fall asleep after only a few minutes if I hold her in what I consider the normal or standard BF position, but will stay awake for a really good feeding if I hold her tucked under my arm (is that called football style? I really don't know the terms, sorry)
AFM we are four days pp and my milk is actually here! Hallelujah! Actually, it came in yesterday and quite frankly I was more concerned with it arriving in a timely manner than I was about being pregnant, or the impending birth, or the postpartum recovery because for my DS it took 12 days before I was getting anything! Talk about unnecessary stress for a first time momma! But this time around we knew it was a possibility and started taking EVERYTHING that I took the first time to get it to come in right away.
DD latches on REALLY strongly, and the initial latch is painful because she nurses so often, but it goes away after a second or two. She tends to want to nurse all the time and wants to sleep on the breast but we are working to change that. I didn't get engorged with DS because by the time my milk came in he was soo ready for it (we didn't starve him in the meantime, by the way, my SIL donated milk and I gave it to him in our SNS) so the tenderness in my breasts is quite a different experience, but I'll take that over feeling like I'm starving or failing my baby any day.
Overall I am loving being able to snuggle my sweetie and stroke her downy head and really enjoy this newborn time.
by the way, how is everyone doing with the afterpains that nursing brings on? Good Lord! It is a good thing I recently read that they were worse with subsequent babies or I would seriously have thought something was wrong with me! Ugh! I'm just glad that they seem to be getting better, not worse.
