Hello Mommas!! I have to say that in my last 2 threads, all the information from you all was wonderful! I don't know what I would do with out this forum!! Anyways, I have a couple questions about my DD and her spit up. She is about 7 weeks old now and spits up SOO much. In my previous threads, I was told as long as she is gaining and happy, this is fine.
Yesterday, it was unbelievable how much and often she spit up. Sometimes her spit up was completely clear. Is this normal? Also, we live in a small town and we went to the "city (bigger town with more shopping) and I was wondering if stress can affect my milk and make her spit up more? I am also having stress from a family emergency. Can that affect everything? So far today, her spit up has been very minimal. She was so exhausted from yesterday she went/slept 6 hours without eating, I had to wake her up. She only nursed on one side so I had to pump the other because I was so full.
My next question is, if she starts only nursing on one side each session, how do I deal with the engorgement on the other breast? Should I pump or wait til she is hungry again? Thank you!!!
