Hi my baby is not drinking milk properly....she is awake in day time but not.drinking milk.more than 5mins...but in ni8 she is nt waking up for milk...sleeping more than 5 r 6 hours....when she is awake she is urinate frequently but when she is sleeping she is not peeing...if I wake her for milk she is not latching....is there a problem if she didn't get enough milk at ni8....

Bhuvana first of all stop worrying. Your baby will have milk only when she wants to and it is totally fine if she is latching for 5 mins only. If you force her latch she won't. so the key is that feed her on demand. do not force her or think she is hungry. If she is hungry she will ask for feed. A baby normally urinates for at least 7 to 8 times in a day so that is normal. relax and sit back. She is OK u need to be relaxed now. All the best :)

short nursing sessions are normal and perfectly fine unless your baby is having trouble gaining weight.

plenty of wet and soiled nappies are a good sign ( six or more wet nappies a day)

Make sure she is latching on properly

if it still bothers you, talk to your pedi or a lactation consultant
