If breastfeeding is uncomfortable or you need help with position or latching, see a breastfeeding peer counselor or lactation consultant right away. Call your local WIC office or 1-855-550-6667 for breastfeeding help.

Call your doctor if your baby:

  • Does not regain his birth weight by 2 weeks of age.
  • Has fewer than 6 wet diapers by his sixth day of life.
  • Has fewer than 3 stools a day by his third day or life.
  • Will not wake up to nurse at least 8 times a day.
  • Falls asleep or stops nursing immediately after latching.
