Re: Coughing after feedings
I share with you a disappointment with the lack of basic breastfeeding knowledge exhibited by our pediatrician.
2 of my LO's were mucous factories and no matter what I did or did not do they spat and coughed and grumbled until the mucous came up and out.
you're right, breastfed babies do not get constipated b/c breastmilk is high in water content. but it does take time for all babies to learn how to use their sphincter muscles so be ready for a poo-explosion coming your way.
