    Default Two QU pumping

    My little guy loves to drink air bubbles. He is gaining good, good diaper output and he is almost 8 weeks.

    I am thinking it is his latch? Since day one he hasn't opened his mouth very big. His top lip also folds in a bit.

    I can kind of pull his lip up and his suck is really strong, so once he gets on he has a large amont of areola in his mouth, but he still gets some bubbles in there.
    He is a great baby (besides his evening fussy time I mentioned before).

    Anyone else have a bubble drinker or have any tips?

    ALSO

    Should I pump at night? He has seven to nine feeds in 24 hours. After his fussy time (during which he only nurses once or twice due to not being a comfort nurser) he will sack out for 4 to 5 hours sometimes. He also sometimes feeds one side at a time. This means that one side can go 6 to 8 hours before being nursed on. Do you think I should pump? Supply seems fine, but looking for some second opinions.

    Are the bubbles bothering him? If not, don't worry about it.

    I would not pump. Feed on demand.

    I don't think they bother him all that much. Not unless he really wants to burp, then he gets real mad.
    I only pump one side, one time a day, since I am trying to build a stash.

    Thanks for the reply!
