Re: Struggling to breastfeed my newborn

It sounds like you are making more than enough. Remember babies have their days and nights mixed up many times. Sounds like he is perfect and no supplimenting is needed. He also may be using you as a paci at night, my babies did that. An ounce per feed is very normal at his age. He has a teeny tummy.

Some babies cluster feed at night due to laying down more and refluxing. Makes them want to nurse more for comfort. I would watch for that. It is common. My newbies had to be on an incline to nurse to not reflux. Two even needed meds to feel better.
