History...... Baby was born full term. He was lethargic and not feeding well (not sure if i was producing). Jaundice got bad and he ended up getting phototherapy and was put on formula. I pumped what colustrum I had but I think then flange? Was too small and got minimal.
Baby came home. Continued breastfeeding but weight gain was minimal. Ended up going back to hospital for more phototherapy. Continued breastfeeding and giving formula maybe 1-2 feedings a day.
Baby came home again. He was continued to be breastfed (still minimal weight gain). Jaundice persisted and went on formula for two days. He was placed on an organic soy formula bc of suspected milk protein allergy (colic like behavior at night).
Baby is off formula and breastfeeding with maybe 1-2 bottles of expressed milk at night.
When baby is on bottle or breast he makes a clicking noise. I have him relatch on and will move my breast every way to see if I can get the clicking to stop. When BF, it usually doesnt occur during the letdown time.' With the bottle it occurs spontaneously (avent natural).
I suspect he is getting a lot of air bc of lots of passing gas and tummy gurgling. I know he is getting some milk bc it is all over his lips.
Lately he wants to feed constantly. He falls asleep within minutes at the breast.
Is this clicking "normal"? Is weight gain slower with BFing?
Is constant feeding normal?
Sorry this is so long!
