Thread: Gulping air one side

  1. #1

    Default Gulping air one side

    my baby is 12 days and a couple nights ago he started sucking much more strongly. he does fantastic on the left breast but on the right he seems unable to get a good enough seal to accommodate the harder sucking and is gulping so much air he is fussy and i have to burp him constantly. he also ends much less satisfied and now my left side is getting engorged while my right just doesn't seem to produce much at all. i feed 1 breast per feeding and repeat that breast if feedings are less than 2 hrs. he is gaining well. any suggestions to help?

    Welcome! How are things going now? And how does the latch feel?

    This link describes the reverse pressure softening technique, which may help baby cope with the engorgement: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/moth...oft_cotterman/
