  1. Re: Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    His poop is the normal mustard seedy color NORMALLY. However, since I've started giving him colic calm to help his tummy when hes super uncomfortable from the gas, it then is almost like a dark green...
  2. Re: Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    I've tried amd continue to try all methods to help eliminate gas... He'll expel some during tummy massages/bicycles etc but even after 30 plus min of doing it and getting out what I'd consider a LOT...
  3. Re: Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    The only one that is really forceful is the first one of the feed if he hasn't eaten off of it for 2-3 hours. I try to pull him off when I feel the letdown coming and express some, enough to where...
  4. Re: Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    Forgot to add, I'm going to try the medication Levsin for a week to see if it helps. If not, do you think I should just keep BFing and not even try formula (although, if I did I'd continue pumping...
  5. Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    This morning my LO screamed for 4 hour straight :( I could tell he was super uncomfortable from gas (as he has been for several weeks) but he's never quite cried like this and for as long as he did....
  6. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    Thanks for the reply :) I am doing the things you've suggested ... I gave him two warm baths today which calmed him right down .,.. For about 10 min :P he was really upset tonight and I could tell he...
  7. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    Do you ladies know anything about silent reflux? Do you think it's possible that could be why he wants to nurse so much therefore causing more gas? My doctor said we could try reflux meds but he has...
  8. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    Oh and he won't take a pacifier. I have a drawer full of various ones and he won't take any of them. I'm doing everything people have suggested so far .. Baths,massages, etc .. But only helps for...
  9. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    The doctor said the fact that he had gained 4 lbs in 5 weeks (really 5 if you start from what he had lost at the hospital prior to going home) suggests he's eating more then normal. Which he is abnd...
  10. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    Thanks .. Yeah, if he's not crying at diaper changes I do give him the gas/colic massage which he seems to enjoy and he does usually pass a little gas. How can I allow him to comfort nurse and not...
  11. Re: Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    By the way, stools are normal in color/texture - Rarely spits up, but does cough/gulp/choke during letdown which I have several per feeding since he nurses for so long - hours at a time and he's done...
  12. Oversupply/OALD & Comfort Nursing

    Ok, I think I've figured out whats bothering my little one ... Problem is, I don't know how to fix it :(

    I have a 5 and a 1/2 week old, born @ 39 weeks - 7 lbs 6 oz - As of yesterday weighed 11...

    Re: Cutting out dairy ...

    Forgot to add, it's usually only uncomfortable when he initially latches. I do have the dreaded "lipstick" nipple when he's done. He'll start with a deeper latch and the longer he nurses, it gets...

    Re: Cutting out dairy ...

    Ive read to info on foremilk/hindmilk and I just get overwhelmed :P It very well could be that buts definitely not caused by not leaving him on long enough .. He's usually on each breast a min of 30...

    Re: Cutting out dairy ...

    Thanks for the reply, norasmommy! He just seems to be in constant pain/uncomfort ... Occasionally while nursing as well, he'll cry and pull off, strain to try to pass gas and then want to latch right...
  16. Re: Please tell me this too shall pass!

    Thank you all so much for the encouraging words. I will look into reflux! He doesn't spit up at all though so not sure? Perhaps silent reflex as suggested by someone in my "cutting dairy" thread.

    Cutting out dairy ...

    My little guy is very fussy and gassy so I decided to try to eliminate dairy to see if it helps.

    Have any of you cut out dairy (without the obvious signs it was an allergy) and saw an improvement...
  19. Please tell me this too shall pass!

    At least before I have to go back to work in 8 weeks :(*

    I've read through previous posts with similar issues but I need to hear it again :) I'm super stressed out about this ...

    I have a...

    Hi!

    I have a 3 1/2 week old that is exclusively breastfed. He literally nurses all day, everyday. Well, he's not "actively" nursing the entire time but he is attached to my breast pretty much the...
