Quoting Blessed x2♥:" Sometimes that works but not always, Idk if she just sleeps so much cause she was a month early or what."Hmm my baby was born 37 & 4. And she pretty much does nothing but sleep. I asked her pedi about it and she said usually the first couple weeks they pretty much just sleep. So its probably ok, hopefully you can get her woken up enough to eat! Sometimes mine wont finish her little bottle she will just pass back out
Quoting Blessed x2♥:" Brooklynn isnt gaining the weight she should be. Pedi says she needs to be gaining at least 10 grams ... [snip!] ... thats when she is awake. How do I get her to "dream feed" or wake up during feedings during the day so she is getting enough?"
Quoting Blessed x2♥:" I tried that her last and she didnt care lol She just stayed sleeping. Ive tried rubbing her feet and back and head.. nothing. She just loves to sleep I think."
Quoting ~Elliott's.Mommy~:" the nurse told me that elliott isnt getting the calories he needs which is why he's so sleepy, so now we have to use formula right after breastfeeding."
Quoting Blessed x2♥:" Im really hoping that we wont have to start using formula, Shes been feeding better and longer today, Im nervous for her next app though."
