Hi Tiyas lake of breast milk leads to jaundice.. so even if your baby sleepy wake up ur baby gently and feed as much as u cn

Mala Srinivas

While breastfeeding please gently rub his ears for him to continue feed. After direct breast feed try feeding in palada some expressed milk. This helped me to feed my sleepy baby she was on high dose of medicine for seizures so she was asleep most of the time. This might take lot of time but keep doing it. I use to feed my baby for 1.5hrs and wake her up again after 1.5hrs that was 3hrs from last feeding time. you need lots of patience to feed a sleeping baby but once you see those weight gain you ll feel you have passed in merit. All the best dear.
