My LO is 4 months old on the 10th and EBF. He's always been an extremely fussy feeder. His birth weight was 8 lbs 7 oz and now he's 16 lbs 1 oz. He was diagnosed with silent reflux two weeks ago and takes prevacid.
My healthcare provider gave me flack about his weight gain in the beginning, and ever since then breastfeeding has been all about stress and not at all pleasurable. He's my second baby, so I thought it'd be easier this time. I became hyper-vigilant about his weight gain and feedings, offering the breast at every grunt or cry. Now at almost 4 months, he seems to only want to eat when STARVING (4-5 hrs during the day) and longer at night. When he does feed, he seems uninterested and lethargic even after such a long stretch. I know he's gaining well, but the feedings are so frustrating and usually end in tears. I don't want to force him but I also want to make sure he gets enough.
Anyone been thru anything similar?
