Hi, my baby boy is 24 days old. He was 9 ½ lb at birth. Now he is 10 ½ and has grown almost 2 more inches. I have a lot of milk, and he empties the breast in about 10 minutes. He wants the breast every 2 hours, day and night. The problem is that he doesn’t open his mouth big enough, I think. I can hear him swallowing a lot of air; he makes like a “donkey” sound. Also I can feel the air running up and down his back. After he’s finished, he seems very uncomfortable, especially if I try to burp him. If I don’t move him, he goes to sleep. If I try to burp him, he cries a lot and wants to be on the breast all the time, even though he’s throwing a lot; sometimes like a projectile and that scares me. This is my third child after 14 years. I don’t remember having this situation with the last one whom I breast fed for almost 3 years. I’m afraid to put him so often on the breast because he seems so full, and he’s throwing so much, that’s why I give him the pacifier, and he gets somewhat contented. I’ve notice that for him to be contented, he either has to be on the breast or on the pacifier. Always sucking! Any suggestion? I’m exhausted.
Also, he has a rash. Is getting better, though, after trying triple paste, desitin, d+a, Vaseline, you name it. the Ped. said is a common rash. Very stubborn common rash!. He had a very watery stool. I cut on dairy products and it seems to help.
