Doctor insights on:
Nurses are a type of healthcare professional that can provide a variety of health services.
Yes: Ask to speak to the charge nurse and voice your concerns to her. It may be a simple misunderstanding, or something else that is easily correctable. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: It is quite common for babies to ignore the expectations of "civil society" and make noises that may be embarresing. I enjoy the idea that "barracuda" baby is so robust in his/her efforts. Aside from extra air swallowing & need for more burping or gas, i don't see a downside. Perhaps you could record this symphony of joy and keep it for later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was not conscious. Therefore the concern. I went out completely. They made sure I was out. Yet the nurse said I woke up and looked around.
Sedation: Most likely you were given sedation, not general anesthesia. A sedation will keep you comfortable and breathing on your own, though you may have no memory of the procedure. To answer more fully would require a review of the procedure notes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
About 10-15 min/side: In the first days after delivery, it will likely take a while for your breast milk to come in.

Every 2-3 hours: If you just had your baby, you should plan to nurse at least every 2-3 hours, with a goal of about 8-12 feedings per 24 hrs. It is a good idea to keep track of your feedings in the first week of life. Once your milk supply comes in and your baby starts to take more milk at a time, the feeding frequency declines. This is something your pediatrician will be able to provide further guidance on. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
?: The length of time at the breast is not a good indicator of how well the feeding has gone. A baby can spend an hour at the breast, but if the latch is poor, may not have transferred much milk. They could also spend 10 minutes and get all they need. Babies love to hang out at the breast and breastfeeding is so much more than food. I'd stop watching the clock and enjoy the time with the baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
