My son is 5 weeks old.
He weighed 5 lbs 12 oz when born, and currenlty weighs 9 lbs 1 oz
i think that i have a fore milk, hind milk imbalance and an over active letdown.
here's why i think so....
he's SO gassy, crampy and screaming in pain often
he eats ve3ry frequently but only latches for 5 minutes
hiccups all the time
high weight gain
sputtering and coughing when he's nursing
the only thing is that his poops arent green. they are amber colored but pure liquid.
i'm getting so frustrated because i feel like he's getting too much lactose in the fore milk and thats whats making his stomache hurt.
i feel like its my fault that he's having a hard time but all i can think to do is keep nursing him.
i tried block feeding for 48 hours and yesterday was our first day going back to nursing and offering the other breast second.
i can't see a difference yet and i thought maybe i would have by now.
do i just need to be patient?
am i wrong to think that things would be smoother?
