Difficulity with Newborn


I have a newborn just about 3 days old. At first she did really well with feeding every 2-3 hours. Now she is not interested in feeding.



Newborns can be very sleepy. Keep offering the breast on a regular basis even if baby isn't showing traditional hunger cues. Watch baby while they are sleeping and if you see their eyes moving back and forth under their eyelids this can be a great time to try a feeding as it indicates that they aren't in a deep sleep. You can also try to rouse baby by tickling their feet or rubbing their cheeks or lips.

Hope this helps!
