Hi ladies! My little guy was born at 933 this morning, and so far he seems to be nursing like a champ. His latch is great. But how do I know if he is getting anything? I can squeeze and nothing comes out. Woildnt there be colostrum or something? He is having wet diapers, but I know this could be from inhaling fluid. His weight loss is at 3%. So it's less than the normal 5%-7% post birth weight loss. Sorry just with all my previous breastfeeding issues I'm scared I'm starving him.
To add, I am doing my best to nurse every 2 hours. He usually goes from 10-15 min per side before he falls asleep again. But I'm also nursing on demand too
