Re: Different LC's & very conflicting advice
I am sorry that no-one has yet been able to figure out what- if anything- the problem is. I think your idea to get hold of a scale is an excellent one. If you rent one and do several days' worth of data collection, you will gain a highly accurate picture of what your LO's intake is on a per feeding basis. If there's some sort of milk transfer problem, that data will expose it.
If you just wait, I think there is every reason to think that things will change a lot. Your baby is still so young, and even under the best of circumstances newborns have confusing behaviors and are challenging to nurse. I was nursing my toddler to bed just now and thinking about how much things have changed over the last two years. From oversupply and OALD to normal nursing to teething to all-night-nursathons to distractibility to toddlerhood... Change is really the name of the nursing game.
