My sister just had a baby girl on Thursday (yay!). She's doing well nursing and has only lost 2% of her birth weight so far but she doesn't really nurse at night. She apparently loves her sleep at night! They've tried stripping her down, tickling her feet and head, tried putting sugar water on her nipple...nothing has worked to keep her awake enough to nurse at night. Should she be concerned? Any other tricks she could try? I've never experienced this myself. Both of my girls were attached to my boobs pretty much 24/7 the first few months so I don't know what else to suggest to her.
