I have a 7 week old girl and I'm worried because she always seems hungry. She only eats about 10-15 minutes a feeding and usually only on one breast. When I burp her she seems to root and whines but when I try to put her back on the breast she doesn't take it. I am currently using a nipple shield because she doesn't stay latched on without it and we end up having hysterics (both of us). Most of the time she'll fall asleep right after the feeding if I give her a binky, but she sucks really hard on it for a few minutes. I don't know what to do, or if I'm just overreacting. Any advice?
