Ahhh, Autumns growth spirts killing me. All she wants to do is sleep amd not nurse. If I try waking her up she will scream. She won't eat unless hold her head and hold her on it even if she pushes away. (Lc said do it) So im biting my nails worried she won't eat. I know I know but shes so skinny. Heres recent pic of her. Im not use to having a skinny baby. I dont like it.

I had one of those as well. Do you wear her in a sling? The ring sling pulled way up worked best do us. Lots of skin-to-skin, too. Refresh my memory--how old is she now?

When my baby was born he was very small and skinny I had a LC come out because he wasn't gaining weight...i was
told to wake him every 2 hrs no matter if he was sleeping....some babies want to sleep during a growth spurt or eat...she's very cute

I have a moby. What would skin to skin do? She is 6 weeks 3 days old.

Even when the baby is not actually nursing, skin-to-skin is helpful. It increases mother's milk supply. It helps to "organize" the baby's behavior so that she learns to feed more easily. Skin-to-skin contact also keeps your baby warm and secure and helps her use all her energy to grow.

I try putting her to breasr, I have to fight with her to eat. Before we had no problem with the paci, now she wants it 24/7 or she will cry. Why is this? She knew the difference between the two. Should I toss the paci?

Take a bath with her if skin to skin is too hot.  It really is good for her : ). And I would ditch the paci if it affects bf at all.

The purple is gone though and now we can see her beautiful face! I love looking at pics of her - she's adorable!!  Also, with the moby I would completely take my shirt and bra off.  Once she's wrapped you cant see anything and its cooler

No, just no.  Your friend is making that up.  Moms milk is made special just for Autumn! And she's not had formula right? Or a bottle? She doesn't know how t be dissatisfied.
