Hi My newborn is 2 weeks old. She is cluster feeding and i think I'm overfeeding her? She had one side then offered her the other which she drank from twice she was sick and still wanted feedibg more- this happened earlier today constant feeding sick and still wanting more- should I carry on feeding her? Did this happen with your dc?
Yep mine was the same. Just keep switching sides. The problem is that they have such small stomachs that even a little bit of sick/posetting empties their stomach a little bit so they need to top up. She may also be comfort suckling a little but you shouldn't offer a dummy until bf is established. This phase will pass soon
Don't worry you're doing fine! My newborn DS used to vomit plenty and then want more food straight afterwards when he was breastfed and then when he was on formula 2 weeks later!! I think he would be a bit of a guts and take too much for his small tummy.
But remember to get that wind up, DS still brings up milk 5 mins after a feed if I haven't got burps out of him.
We found this happened if we didn't burp her or if we laid her down too soon after feeding. So, when changing sides, make sure to burp her. You can't overfeed a BF baby, she'll stop sucking when she is done. It gets easier - eventually the feeds are shorter and more spaced apart. Hang in there!
