Hi, my baby is 13 days old and wants to feed all the time. Even when he falls asleep, he would wake up within a few minutes and want to feed again..does this mean I don't have enough milk?

Hi! It doesn’t mean that you aren’t making enough milk. Is he making enough wet diapers and gaining weight? Those are your indicators. What you are describing is cluster feeding. That is perfectly normal. It helps to bring in and regulate your supply. It’s also biologically normal for babies to feed and want to feed to sleep.

I am undecided with what breast pump to get. I am a first time mom, welcoming my baby in July. Any recommendations?

I would definitely get a medela if you can. If not, hygeia is a good one too. If your going to be pumping at work I suggest the willow 2.0 or the elvie.

My baby is just now 48 hours old. She fed excellently yesterday, but today she's sleeping SO MUCH and is not really interested in feeding. I put her on and she'll nurse for about two minutes and then spit the nipple out. She's sleepy, but still active, plays with her hands, opens her eyes, chews on her fingers. And she made one wet diaper at 2 PM today. (Our last excellent nursing session was at 2:30 AM this morning. And it's almost 3 PM now.)

Don't worry babies are super sleepy at this age. My daughter was the same and still put on a tonne of weight. Let her sleep. If she doesn't want to have good feed after 3hours you could try rouse her a little more by wiping her foot with a baby wipe to wake her a little. She might just be having a sleepy day and feed lots tonight or tomorrow.
