For the past week or so, Keira has only been eating from one side for each feeding. Sometimes first thing in the morning, she'll drink from both, but after that, it's just one side. I definitely do not have an oversupply, so it's not a normal full feed. She still has wet diapers and a few poops per day...but what is up?
My supply has already slowly decreased since I don't have time to pump the other boob after she feeds.
She also has been sleeping a lot. Both during the day and at night. She's going about 10-11 hours straight at night (not complaining, just mentioning).
Normally, she would do around 9 hours during the night, but just really short, half hour cat naps during the day. The past two days, she's been taking really long naps during the day too. Yesterday, for T's birthday celebration, we were out for 5 hours and she slept the entire time. I was wearing her, but even so, she normally only naps 1-2 hours when I wear her. It's almost 4 PM and I think she's only been up for like 1-2 hours total.
I noticed that she'll appear to be starving and will attack the first boob. But when i switch her to the other one, she turns away and will just stare at my face. I tried moving to a dark room, but she still won't eat.
Could she be teething already or is this just a random hunger strike? Maybe she's distracted by the world around her now that she's more alert (doesn't explain the sleeping though). She has started to drool and I can sometimes catch her sucking and chewing on her thumb.
She's currently about a week and half shy of 3 months (don't bother asking me how many weeks she is. Poor child #2...I have no idea).
Have you experienced similar eating patterns/struggles with your baby? What did you do to get your baby to drink more?
