My baby doesn't feed for long...she feeds for5-7 minutes at one breast and falls off asleep...but she wakes up in half an hour or one and demands to be fed again. Her birth weight was 3.215 kg, and today is her 47th day with weight around 4.760 recorded 2 days back(45th day) she is gaining a little over 30gms every day. Is this feeding pattern on demand Ok???
Also, my breasts leak very often...when I'm feeding my baby at one breast the other starts leaking and my dress becomes completely wet. I try pumping out the little excess milk or try pressing my nipples hard, though it doesn't help much. Any suggestions????
