DS2 is 3 days old. Milk came in over night and after being up with him all night the previous night feeding him, he has now settled into having really short (5-10 min) feeds and going to sleep. I've tried to prompt him to take more but he really is fast asleep.
He's really content, probably the most content of all my children! Lots of wet and poo nappies, alert when he is awake.
Does this sound ok? Or like I should be doing more to get him to feed for longer? This is my third time bfing but they're all so different!
His tummy is tiny and also, it takes lots of energy to stay awake when you are so small. It is normal, babies tend to know when theyre done. Dont try and force him to take more. He is only 3 days old, it will settle, day by day, into a longer feeds and less sleeping. Dont worry.
