Hello everyone! I am new to this board and bfing. A first time mom, I am a little concerned that I am doing something wrong. My lo took to the breast immediately after birth and has never struggled to latch. Due to an extreme amount of pitocin during labor (that ended in c-section), my milk came in very late (day 8).
We finally got good at bfing full time on day 9. She has a great latch and will nurse on both sides most of the time. She does fall asleep while nursing, often, which makes her not want the second side. Two days later she had a horrifying screaming fit, which we presumed to be due to gas. The next morning she pooped her first bf poop. Then the next day we had another screaming fit, but no poop yet. It has been 2 days since she pooped and she had another screaming fit this morning. We have tried the bicycle move, different patting positions, gripe water, bouncing on our knee, and walking around the house.
I called the advice line, but they said there was no reason for concern. How can that be? Is she not getting enough food? Is she getting too much fore milk? Dairy allergy? Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.
