Ok so forgive me if in the next few days i post a number of questions, i only just found out this site exsists!! and in comparrison to other sites im surprised to get answers the same day let alone in a matter or minutes!!
OK - so my question is regarding Breastfeeding. When i BF my first he was a ferocious eater and would latch on and get right down to business with not even a break untill he either finished one side and wanted the other or was full!
With my 5 week old girl she acts hungry all the time and once she is on she gives about a minute of strong sucking before going into a deep sleep which even nappy changing doesnt wake her out of. I put her down and within minutes shes awake and screaming again because she is hungry! she has been doing this since about 3 weeks old. Im always quite full because of the constant stimulation. i have tried block feeding, letting her cry in order to get enough of a time frame where i know shell be hungry, expressing and feeding to her in a bottle, whiping her face with cool face washer to keep her awake, tickling feet while feeding, undressing, you name it iv tried just about everything i can think of to keep her awak. However nothing so far seems to work. She is almost always overtired come night time and i always end up having to ask hubby to do the cooking while i tend to her, but at night once she is asleep she usually sleeps for about a 6 hour block before waking. While im enjoying the long sleep at night i know its not good for her and i still get nothing done during the day because she is constantly crying for food!
Any tips, advise or suggestions?
