Answer: Hi.we too came across the same situation and I'm sure every parent will undergo the stage. the sleeping pattern of the newborns keep changing for every 15 days or 1 month or in a particular interval. for a few days they will sleep in the morning and be awake in night and for the other few days they will sleep in the night and be awake in the morning.but a 15 days old baby will be sleeping most of the time. make sure you nurse her properly keeping the room dark. if she sleeps for half an hour and wake up again then it should be the pattern of your baby. it will all get regularised by 6th or 5th month.

Answer: Hi,it is because baby gets sotthing effect while latching so the baby likes to latch even if the baby is no hungry. But you should not let the baby latch fir more that 20 mins as if the baby latches continously it can also cause gas problesms.in case you feel that you are not able to give sufficient milk then you can start fm.but I feel.as your baby is 8 months you would have also dtart s with solid foods as if be.so then that should also help.
