My LO has had green foam bowel movements for over a week. She has been very gassy and not sleeping. I did some research and figured it was an imbalance with my hindmilk. To resolve this I have been block feeding. However I have been pumping and/or hand expressing prior to feeding on the new breast. So for example: pump right breast till a little creamy milk appears, then feed for three feedings on the right side without pumping in-between feedings. Then switching to the left breast and repeat the same process.
My question is a two parter:
1.) is what I am doing okay? Will she be hydrated?
2.) I need to work on my milk storage for my return to work. How should I do this and incorporate to correct my imbalance?
My husband really wants me to use formula, but I really want to breastfeed my baby. Please help.
