My 2nd daughter was born yesterday afternoon. She latched on really well and has fed brilliantly, but from 24 hours old just wants to feed constantly and is crying unless latched on.

I know my milk won't come in for 2-3 days yet. Will she be like this until then? Any tips?

Will be 1-handed typing/ trying to settle her so please bear with me!!!

They only get tiny amounts of colostrum so do need to feed often - it will get better with time as your milk comes in. The positive thing is the more she feeds now the quicker you'll get your milk in.

Do you have a DP/H at home to wait on you at the moment?
