Really need a little advice I am little concerned regarding my sons green poo! and recent
J is 14 weeks old and over the past two weeks, J poo has been on and of olive green. He Has showed no other sign of illness(no temperture/vomiting and with no increase or decrease in diapers he normally has 5 or more wet nappys and pooed twice a day up untill two weeks ago his poo was yellow and he has seemed like his normal self)
He has a good latch since birth and has alway had a blocked feed on my left boob for 2-3 hours before feed off the right this repeats it self though out the day. He prefers to feed on avarge every one and half - two hours except in the night where he recieved one fomula supplement at round 1.30 and 2.30 depending on when he wakes up.
J weight gain has been steady gaining between 8-11 ounces per week he normally feeds between 15 min-to half an hour and until the breast are soft. He appears to be in the pre stages on teething he is constantly dribbling and chewing on his hands.
Yet since friday he has gone on a bit of nursing strike and have had to supplement with formula more :0( (one in the morning one late after noon and one at nigh.t he is taken between 4-6 ounces at a time) He has appeared less satisfied (still hungry) with the boob and has been shouting fussing and refusing the breast complete yet still communicating through his cues that he is hungry and crying his I am hungry cry. I am currently Persevering with this and he is still take the breast inbetween which i am really glad about.
Do you have any advice I have wonder weather I may have a foremilk/ hind milk inbalance (yet i feel like my supply is less and i never seem to get any milk off though pumping), weather the constant swallowing of salvia is irrating him or weather he is developing an intorance to something in my diet (yet i thought that this would be unlikely).
Every day i am waiting to see how he gets on the breast before giving formula. I am offering the breast regularly in a relaxed way trying not to make a thing of it and really taking the lead from him. I continue to feed him in the bath and he enjoys skin to skin contact whilst feeding.
Please can you advise me if you think I can do something differently or there is something I could try.
