My grandson was born 19 hours ago....we had a natural birth with midwives and my daughter is very patient, feeling great and well rested.
Little Dante nursed before we left the hospital. And has nursed for a total of 15 minutes once and 5 minutes.
He CAN latch...he CAN suck...he is just completely unmotivated to do so.
I've never had a baby like this. He was awake for 3 hours after birth...then awake another 3 hours after...then last night pretty much slept from 10:30 to 7am. He's not crying much..he's aware, awake, and seems ok. But omg..he's brand new. He didn't nurse at night.
He nursed for 12 minutes at 9am...it's 10:40am now...he chews his fingers...latches on and nurses for a minute maybe and then quits.
MY daughter is nursing him now...he has latched for 2 minutes, nursed..now he's done and happy.
He was 8lbs and he's adorable
Midwife will be here shortly. But I'm just wondering...it "feels" ok...and I think he'll pick up.
Oh..he had a huge poop this morning so something go in.
