Yes, im patting him lightly and firmly on the back after the feeding. I havent seen any stool but then again i have never seen any stool the mom is quick i guess. I read that you shouldt try rubbing more than a minute. Thats when i stop and momma starts licking himAre you trying to burp him, just in case he is getting air in his belly? 2-3 ml every 1.30 hours seems more than adequate. As long as his mom is still tending to him, that is a very, very good sign. Belly rubs are good for provoking peeing, but not sure that is necessary yet if his mom is licking not just his bottom, but his belly as well. Has he produced any stool?
