  • yes its normal....maybe she is still sleepy, shes hungry but not ready to be awake yet... so therefore she gets herself all worked up.

  • yes its normal, shes probably tired, annoyed, and hungry when she first gets up. Plus, she has to wait for the breast to drop so its frustrating for her. She'll become accustomed to it, and she'll be fine.
