My son was born a week ago, and he is doing very well nursing. But he seems to latch better to a bottle than to my breast. He will eat up to 3-4 oz already from a bottle of expressed breast milk, but when it comes to nursing directly from the breast he only nurses for maybe 5 minutes from each side (but only from one side at a time), which isn't like what he did when he was in the hospital, where he nursed about 10 minutes on each side.
Maybe I'm just getting paranoid that he wont nurse correctly or something. Any ideas why he's doing this? Or any way I can help him get on the breast better than that bottle?
