Quoting ambrahh:" Very helpful! So as I'm feeding I'm suppose to alternate it...feed for however many mi items on one boon and finish on the other?"
When it's a normal feeding in the beginning, they fall asleep a lot. I normally stick with one boob per feeding in the beginning unless they unlatch and are still awake and acting interested in eating. If they are still interested, I'll offer the other boob. Next feeding, I'll start with the 2nd boob. As they get older though, they normally will use one boob first and then switch over to the other boob before they're done with a feeding. I would still start with a different boob at each feeding though so i don't get lop-sided.
You'll hear a lot of moms freaking out about babies falling asleep on the boob and worrying if they got enough or not. My opinion is that they'd still be awake if they were hungry. They wake up when they're hungry. That's what babies are programmed to do, eat, poop, and sleep. Waking up a baby in a food-coma is almost impossible. Obviously if the baby is smaller than normal or born early, the rules are different. I'm talking about full term babies without issue.
