OALD/OS or dairy?
DD is 3.5 weeks old. She was a champ at BF from the very first time and seemed fine (gas/poop wise) up until about a week and a half ago. Around 2 weeks she started arching her back and screaming/crying while trying to nurse, pulling on and off. This does not happen at every feeding-probably 3 times a day. She also seems to be a bit uncomfortable now while trying to poop or pass gas, especially in the early morning (is there a reason for the time of day?). She grunts throughout the day and scrunches her legs but not constantly. After her 5AM feeding though, she doesn't seem to sleep, she actually keeps DH and I awake with all her grunting and fussing. I do have almost painful letdown everytime she nurses or when its approaching nursing time. I am trying to determine if I have OALD/OS (pretty sure I do) or if DD has a porblem with dairy. I'm debating cutting dairy out but I LIVE on dairy products!! I could drink milk all day long; I eat yogurt a few times a week, eat cheese almost daily, and enjoy ice cream in the evening a few days a week. I read in another thread that someone's baby had normal yellow seedy poop so they didn't think the baby had a problem with dairy.... DD also has normal yellow seedy poop-never seems mucousy and I have not seen one green poop. Does this really mean she's OK with the dairy?
