My little one is 9 weeks old, and although I'm assured by our pediatrician, friends, and the BF community, I still worry about how much he's getting and whether or not I'm feeding him the "Right" way.
He has a less than perfect latch (his tongue & lip ties were corrected, but we still have some problems- though I can hear and feel him transferring milk much more effectively) and often has green poop.
I know that my letdown can be forceful, although it was decreasing but since he's sleeping more at night, it's come back. I tried block feeding, which FREAKED me out once I found out that it decreases your supply. Mostly, he nurses on one side at a time and falls asleep and/or won't want to take the second breast.
Because of all I've read, I'm terrified of "foremilk/hindmilk imbalance," losing my supply, and allergies. I'm constantly anxious (to the point of getting meds) that I will be missing something that is going wrong with him.
Here's what I want to know: Is green poop really that bad? Will the letdown ever finally calm down for good? How do I know if my supply is okay? How do I tell he's getting enough food?
