Great advice from everyone. I agree that swaddling helps them sleep better but I do it before she eats so I don't wake her. I've talked to lots of moms that just stop doing after the first few days. At 4 weeks I started swaddling and the first time I got an 8 hr stretch of sleep from her at night and it set up a whole new pattern of eating, sleeping, and waking for longer. To keep my baby awake while nursing I would gently pull on my nipple like I was taking it away as soon as she slowed down the slightest bit( from the deep swallows not the initial short rapid swallows). She still sometimes just wants a little snack and that's ok
