I have a one week old baby and nursing is going pretty well. I am wondering if some veteran nursing mommies can give us some advice. How long should I let her sleep in the night before waking her to eat? She usually wakes herself up - but should I let her sleep if she does not?
Also, how long do you normally feed on each breast? I know it differs from baby to baby - but I have a hard time knowing when she's "done."
All of your advice would be much appreciated - Georgia needs her "eatlies."
mom to one glorious sweetpea born 10/18/2007.
If she was full term, and is gaining and having enough wet and dirty diapers, I'd let her sleep when she sleeps.
Feed on each breast until she's done and lets go.
Thanks so much for all your help. How do I tell the difference between her being "sleepy" and "done." Any idea?
I'm sure breastfeeding is going better than I think - I just want to make sure she's getting all she needs and mommy can get a littlesleep as well!
Thanks for all your help!
