Actually, the baby may not be that hungry yet. Imagine that you were just born. You were nice & cozy, warm & well fed. All of a sudden, you're squeezed through a tube so tight, it deforms your face. Its cold, too bright & you've lost you cocoon. Worst of all, after you've already been poked & prodded, some lady jams a tub down your throat. It's got to be like how we would feel if we were abducted by aliens. Would you be hungry? I'd be ready to throw up. I know your sister is worried, but she needs to relax & cuddle the baby. They both need to know everything is alright. The more she holds the baby, the better the baby will respond. Keep trying to nurse her, when the milk comes in, she'll be ready to tear it up! Congratulations on your new niece.
