My daughter is 5 weeks old and doesn't sleep much during the day. We will go to bed around 10-11 at night and she will wake up around 3-5am, then wake up every 2 hours after that to nurse. I will get out of bed around 9:30-10am. After waking up, she will stay awake for 15-20 mins before getting fussy then she will nurse for about an hour. She will fall asleep while nursing and when I put her down, she will only sleep for about 10-30 mins... then the cycle repeats.
My questions are:
1. How can I get her to sleep more during the day?
2. She has been spitting up a large amount of breast milk about once a day- projectile vomit, about an ounce. Other than that, she spits up maybe every other feeding- just a small amount. Cause for any concern? She is gaining weight fine.
3. Am I possibly not producing enough milk to satisfy her through out the day?
