I still am guessing at this.... so any and all information would be very useful for me. It began 3 weeks ago only on 1 side. Taylor would eat for 5 - 7 minutes and then all of a sudden start squirming, fussing, crying while on breast. She would tug back really far, when I break her latch, she would scream and cry at me. She does not choke or cough! I try to burp her and she get even more mad and cries to the point where she holds her breath. I try to put her back on and I get the fussing and tugging all over again. I have tried giving her the Gerber pacifier that acts like the breast and hold her close to me thinking perhaps she is satisfied and just need to snuggle....... nope!!!!! Not gonna happen.
Now it is happening with the other side. She use to only drink from one side each feeding for 30 - 45 minutes...... but now only drinks for 5 minutes on both because I will switch her to the other side. After I pull her off, she will just scream at me. I am feeling like my only option is to give her formula. It is really begining to worry me since it is now happening to both sides!!!!
Why 3 weeks after birth and why both sides now?
Is it OALD?????????? If so, what can I do????
If not...... what is it???
Since birth she has had green diapers. Sometimes really loose, sometimes seedy and sometimes quite thick. It is rare for her to have a "mustard color" diaper.
PLEASE HELP!!!! LLL leader I called does not seem to want to help!
