I finally gave birth to Erik Thomas Lyons on Memorial Day at 3:05 AM. He's 8.14 Lbs and 21 Inches. I just fed him about thirty minutes ago. He fed for maybe ten minutes, but my breasts are getting the milk in so it kind of leaks out of his mouth while he's feeding. Does that mean that he does not have a proper latch or that my flow is just too fast for him? What can I do to help him out?
Also, he's sucking on a pacifier at the moment. Is he just sucking for comfort or is he really hungry? I figure that if he was hungry he'd stop sucking on the pacifier and start crying, but he's still going at it. Should I check to see if he's hungry?
