My son was born during the night on 8/17/13. He is not even 60 hours old. We didn't get to nurse for the first time until he was almost 12 hours old due to some complications but he took to it immediately and everything seemed fine. Them Sunday night he became jaundiced and needed to go under the bili-lights. They continued to let me take him out to nurse when he shows signs of hunger. Well the last couple of feelings it seems like he's not satisfied and he's wanting to nurse a lot longer/more often. My breasts still feel empty. I know these things can be normal but the nurses are starting to push me to supplement after feelings to keep him under the lights longer and I'm starting to get worried about not having my milk in yet. I just need some moms to reassure me that 1-it's normal that he's acting like he's starving all the time right now and 2- that I don't have "milk" yet.
