Hi my baby is taking feed for only 5 mins...my breast is becoming hard n it starts painin wt to do to.make my baby.drink both the sides....

While feeding the baby keep the baby unwrapped. Being swaddled makes them feel cosy and hence they fall asleep. You can rub the baby's back, place the baby on the bed so that the baby awakens and you can also try wiping the face with a wet cloth.

try to empty one breast before offering the other side. stimulate baby if required and feed on demand as well.
if there is painful hardening of breasts and baby is not feeding you can express some amount. It will bring some relief.
