So I know I have an oversupply issue and OALD; when lil J (3 months old now) is nursing we are doing well with that... well... I work full time so he gets a bottle of EBM all day; will nurse a few times once I am home.
so our issue is that he can go for at least a week without a stool; the issue is the stools are very large- they do fill one diaper- they are dark green, "smoothie" appearance and are REALLY smelly. he has horrible smelly gas throughout the day/week; tummy is soft; gets cranky towards the end of the day and sometimes when he has to toot; but overall is a really happy lil guy...
so I need some suggestions as to how I should pump or manage my milk.
currently I am pumping anywhere from 3-5 times a day- work dependent.
J typically is sleeping through the night so I am not getting up to pump anymore- momma needs some sleep!
so I pump in the am about 05/0530-- will get about 16 oz (8 on each side)
get to work- depending on the week- I will pump about 08/0930, then again over lunch 12/1230; and then I try and get an afternoon session in about 4/430.
then get home and lil J will nurse 1-2 times prior to bed-- i do one sided nursing.
I typically send him to daycare with the milk that I pump in the am-- he taks 16 oz there right now. so I'm thinking that he is just getting too much foremilk...
the milk i pump at work the first 2 sessions are put in bags and frozen when i get home- the last session- usually left in the bottles - I will bag it up at home and freeze it - unless I know we are going to need a bottle...
suggestions?? should I keep the milk from the day when I am pumping more and mix it with the am milk that would have more foremilk??
not sure how to handle the imbalance -- with the pumping.. I just want my poor baby to have better poops-- he was having yellow seedy bms until I started back to work-- he also does have Reflux- diagnosed by ENT- is on Zantac 3 times a day as well..
WOW- that was long! sorry!
