Sweet little Ella is 11 days old and I'm trying to figure out if her nursing behavior is cause for concern. For her first 3 days she literally nursed constantly. And now she only nurses about every 2 hours and for only 5 min. at a time and only on one side per feeding. Between midnight and 7 a.m she only wakes up once to nurse. I have tryed everthing to keep her awake but nothing works. I'm worried that my milk supply will srart going down too much and that she's not going to gain weight because she doesn't stay on long enough to get hindmilk. What, if anything, should I do?
