Have You checked if she is latching correctly? Is she sleeping while on breast? See,you have to embrace the fact that baby is too small as of now and needs at least another 2 months to settle in the outer world. She would need a lot of comfort so she must be comfort sucking too! Does she sleep at daytime after your feed? Have you pumped and checked how much you are producing? What's your babys pee count?is it 6-7 without FM?

Hey
Please feed on both sides only for twenty minutes ten minutes each side... If ur baby peees six times to seven times a day its a sign of well fed baby, she must atleast sleep for two hours after feed... Please pump n see if you are producing enough milk. Once you feed in bottles they refuse to suck from the breast

Sonali Shivlani

Baby's generally tend to use the breast as a pacifier. Keep a tab on the baby's urine count and if that is more than seven per day then feeding is enough. Please do not give formula using a bottle because that gives them satisfaction and they insist on getting that even after long breast feeding.

Thanks for your reply frnds.. no she is not peeing 6-7... If I press my breast only drop of milk will; come.. S when she start bf she will sleep of.. for 5 mins. That's it.. she will cry a lot after hours of feeding also..She is latching properly only for few min she will make galping sound..
