It's been a week today since my son was born. My son's stool is still green, bright green with a bright yellow stain around it. I am just seeing tiny skid marks instead of substantial poop . I get maybe one poop a day that is larger, though not very big, it's generally all frothy, full of bubbles. It's been this way for 3 days. He has plenty of wet diapers, but he has been very sleepy over the last few days and I think my milk has diminished. I got a pump yesterday to pump after he nurses, hospital grade. When he is awake he cluster nurses and I get drained. The rest of the time he sleeps a lot, deeply and when I try to wake and nurse him, he doesn't nurse for long no matter what I do. That's when I plan to pump.
I'm really beginning to think he isn't getting enough milk, I have IGT and was unable to ebf with my first, I've done everything I can to prepare and improve my lactation abilities and am on galactagogues and eating only lactenogenic foods, staying away from anything reputed to reduce supply. Did the few days in a row of him not draining the breast sabatoge my supply?
