Distracted nurser

So, Nathan now has better things to do than nurse. He will nurse and get the foremilk then want to switch and get the foremilk on the second side and then he's done. His weight gain is tanking a bit and I think it's cause he just won't nurse long enough to get the hindmilk. I've tried getting him to stay on the first side and he just won't do it. I'm frustrated! Any tips?

hey kat. what if you tried hand pumping for a few minutes to get out the foremilk? that way when he starts he'll already be up to the good stuff.

I will try that tomorrow, thanks for the suggestion!
