Great post, Claire McCarthy. Thank you.
My two daughters, elder one is not eating well, she ignores food. Younger one is only 12 days old. Sometimes, she could not able to take mother’s milk. She is always in sleep.
It would be good to see a Lactation consultant if your 12 day old is not wanting to nurse. Ask about a tongue and lip tie. Make sure to tickle their feet while eating and it helps to have them just in a diaper and tickle them while they’re eating. Good luck momma!
You should talk to your doctor about your newborn.
