DD was born 11/18. Since the day she was born, she will only nurse for about 3-5 minutes on one side at a time (occasionally 6 or 7 minutes). I have tried everything to get her to nurse longer. She just won't. She has been extremely sleepy and is just now waking up a little, but she just won't nurse any longer. She will go anywhere from 1 to 3 1/2 hours between nursings. At birth she was 8lb 6oz, next night 8/4, next night 7/11, next night 7/13, then we were discharged. I had major issues with DS but we got it all straight after lots of pain and tears and I went on to nurse him for 2 1/2 years. I went to the lactation nurse last week for latch help, but mainly to weigh her and see how much milk she was getting. Before nursing she weighed 8/9, which I was happy about. A little above her birth weight in a little less than 2 weeks. After she nursed she got just shy of two ounces. The LC had me pump the rest and give her 1 ounce in a bottle (my mom gave it to her and she took it fine). I've tried that a few times at home and she will not take a bottle from me or DH.
So usually I will nurse her on one side for two nursings, then switch to the other side for two nursings. I guess kind of block feeding. In my mind I wanted to do that to make sure she gets all of the hindmilk, but if she goes an hour or two between nursing I don't even know if that's happening. She has enough wet/poopy diapers. Is there anything else I can do to get her to nurse longer, or do I even need to try to since she seems to be doing ok like this? Im ok woth the frequent 5 minjte sessions as long as she's getting enough. I'm worried about my supply also.
