I have a 7 day old and my milk came in on day 4th. He seemed very happy with my milk and was drinking well and all when suddenly I felt today that he is rooting to nurse non-stop. Read up a bit and sure enough.. there is a growth spurt that can happen on day 7th.
But this is the part that gets confusing. Last two days ..when he would nurse after 2-2.5 hrs..he would suck for a 3-4 letdowns and be satiated. Today..I am not even feeling that he is getting those 3-4 letdowns. It feels like an endless suck-suck-suck but sometimes swallow and then dry.. no rest and again nursing session..
It cannot be that my milk has been hit for no apparent reason at all..can it? :'(
It sure feels that way.. am a bit anxious here.
