My baby boy is now 5 days old. He latched well the first two days and then we had an episode starting the third day, where he would scream and feed for 3-5 hours at a time! He couldn't latch for more than a few sucks. He didn't poop for a whole day. I decided I was engorged and did everything to treat that. I put him on a schedule of every 2.5 hours and a 4.5 gap at night. He started latching well and I gave him pumped milk but he still hadn't pooped, so we gave him a half of a suppository and he was in heaven. He pooped twice and slept. He latched on the best he had since birth for the next two feedings.
This morning he woke for his night feeding on time but screamed and cried for 2 hours. He is doing the bad latching again. On for a few sucks and off. He is really gassy. He has had the hiccups 4 times since yesterday afternoon. We gave him the second half of the suppository and he immediately pooped it out and then had a green foamy poop. He nursed a bit more and went to sleep. I know that he is getting hindmilk because I empty each breast after feedings and there is rarely anything left. If there is, he gets it at the next feeding.
Is his system just getting used to eating right after 30 hours of struggle? I feel like it is something with my milk that is making him sick. I don't know what to do. I am so desperate for him to be happy and enjoy his life but it seems like he is just so miserable. I need help!
