After going to the lactation consultant and reading info on this sight I have figured
out I have an OALD. My LO will sometimes latch for about 7 minutes on one side and not want to nurse anymore..i feel like that is about the time the flow stops other times he will latch on and off. Or try and control the letdown with his tongue which makes those funny noises.
He will only nurse for about 7 minutes on one side and afterwards doesn't seem like he can possibly eat anymore. He had the right amount of wet diapers and BM but he didnt have great weight gain when I took him in from the week before. The consultant said to not worry about it because he was using all him energy for his growth spurt at 6 weeks.
Any tips on how to get my LO to nurse on the second side? I make sure he has a great big burp when he is done one the one side but he still doesnt seem interested nursing on the second side.
