Joining in with a question :-)
Hi everyone! I just gave birth to my fourth child on Monday and I am successfully breastfeeding, for the first time!! I am beyond thrilled!! A little background...I didn't attempt to BF my first due to medications that I had to start taking right after birth. With my 2nd, she was tongue tied and our hospital didn't even have a lactation consultant, so I gave up rather quickly. With #3, he was also tongue tied, along with having dysphagia and laryngomalacia. This to caused me to again give up within the first week.
So with this baby, I decided if he was tongue-tied I wouldn't even attempt it. But he wasn't! He immediately had a great latch, great appetite, just overall great nurser so far! He has not had one drop of formula!
Now to my question...my milk came in yesterday. Before it came in, Korbin would nurse anywhere from 20-45 minutes per breast. Now that it's in, he gulps the milk for about 10-15 minutes and falls asleep. He almost struggles for breaths because I think the milk is coming fast. Is it normal for him to cut back on his time and is the "gulping" noise he's making normal?
