So in a nutshell: I have a 3 month old. When he was born I breastfed for a couple of weeks and quit due to cracked, bleeding nipples, stress, and generally being overwhelmed. A few weeks after that, when the dust settled, I was determined to start up again. After 6 weeks of pumping, nursing, and crying (both of us).. I got enough milk to wean off the formula.
Now: This past Sunday I woke up engorged and my DS has been having really watery, green stools ever since! After some research I concluded that it's most likely a milk imbalance, only I have no idea how to correct it... I understand the concept of block feeding but I'm having a hard time following it. Also, how long should I try to correct it for? I'm concerned DS will get dehydrated.. I can't really tell if he's peeing when I check his diaper since his stool is so watery. Should I give him formula in the meantime and try to correct my milk with a pump? It breaks my heart to see him having a hard time with this.
