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.

Hi, my daughter is 3 weeks old. She has started only managing 15-20 minute feeds rather than 30-40minute feeds. Even in the night. Her night time feeds were usually around 2.30 and again at 5 but she is now waking more often in the night. Do you think I need to be waking her up and making her feed longer?

I am breastfeeding my little boy and I have cracked nipples on both side and I am using a nipple shield to help with the pain. Any idea on the best cream I can use and how long it lasts for?xx

Mix each of these into a small container in equal parts. I usually put a dime size of each and mix with a cotton swab. Then apply on your nipples and cover with the gel shields. Started seeing results instantly!
