Babies Aged 3 Weeks Often Fall Asleep While Drinking Breast Milk?
,I want to ask. My baby is 3mg age. My baby often falls asleep while drinking breast milk. So that the duration of drinking breast milk is not up to 15 minutes and it often makes him wake up from sleep to ask for more breast milk. His sleep time is less than 1 hour. Is there any way I can do so that my baby can drink the maximum amount of breast milk so that his sleep is not disturbed
Hello Mrs. Sherla,
Between one baby and another baby does have its own uniqueness. In general, babies when breastfeeding will stop on their own when they feel full. there are also babies who continue to breastfeed even though they are asleep. However, if your baby is like the consistency that you provide, you can treat it by giving some stimulus when he has just fed but is asleep, for example, you shake your nipples, so that the baby will reflexively suck back the mother's breast.
Another thing you can do is pay attention to the baby's sleeping hours, normally the baby will feel thirsty and feed every 1-2 hours. However, if you are still having difficulties, you can consult directly with a midwife or breastfeeding counselor regarding maternal problems. Keep the spirit of decorating ya ma'am,
