My lo has been really fussy day and night since about 3 weeks (she's 6 weeks now) and I'm getting really stressed out. I have forceful letdown and it seems to be getting worse no matter what I do. I also get engorged sometimes between feedings. People also tell me that her fussiness is probably because of something I'm eating, since I have bad gas sometimes and she has bad gas, so we're wondering if my diet could be upsetting her. I've tried cutting out dairy and it doesn't seem to help. I'm worried that she's in pain because she cries so much! Sometimes she has wet sounds in her throat. We wonder if she might be bothered by reflux but she doesn't spit up very much or very often.
The worst feeling is when I'm feeding her and she comes off the breast and it sprays everywhere and she won't finish feeding. I burp her and try again but once she's upset I can't seem to console her. We just have to bounce her and dance with her a lot. She acts hungry a lot but refuses to feed or latches then pops off again, even once the fast milk is done and I can see that the milk is very creamy and doesn't spray anymore.. she still won't drink it so we wonder if she's not hungry anymore and maybe just wants to suck so we end up giving her a soother a lot now which I never wanted to do.
Do any of these problems sound familiar and can anyone offer any advice please?? I'm so upset! I'm going to see my Dr. on Thursday and hope he can help.
