Did your milk come in? Sometimes that can take a week or more (my doctors actually told me not to expect it before 5 days, but it came like 36 hours after delivery). Check out Kellymom.com for more info about breastfeeding, though. It's a great resource. So long as you're getting wet and dirty diapers, and feeding 10-12 times a day (at least) and the baby is gaining weight, everything should be fine. I would suggest a lactation consultant, as well, though.
