We just got home today with our newborn who was born on Saturday and I have a few questions....
1. He shivers. Like all the time. Is that okay?
2. He hasn't peed all day but he has pooped. The nurse said as long as he pees once he is fine. But he hasn't....Is that okay?
3. I am trying to breastfeed. My milk hasn't come in yet. He doesn't stay awake that long to feed more than 10-15 minutes. What can I do about that? I feel like he isn't getting enough and that is why he isn't peeing. They also told me to just let him eat when he acts hungry...well if I did that he prob. wouldn't eat at all because I have to wake him up to eat otherwise he just sleeps!
Any breastfeeding tips?? Tricks?

When you wrote this your baby was only 2 days old. Full term babies are born with extra fluid. The small amounts of colostrum is all they need until milk comes in between day 3 and 5.
