Ds2 seems to be struggling with oald. some feeds he seems to manage the flow ok, but other feeds he really struggles to stay afloat. Usually he will gulp like crazy for a couple minutes and then he will either pull off and freak out, or settle in for a decent nursing session. Once he freaks out, it is almost impossible to get him back on and settled. I'm struggling because some days like today, almost all of his feeds ended badly. his poops are all green and watery, and he just seems unhappy. I try to keep him above the boob, but he still struggles. Ive been almost exclusively nursing in the football hold, and I try to do it while leaning back, but it doesn't seem to help.
My other question is if it is possible to have oald without oversupply. Cause I don't have a lot of engorgement or leakage, but I can clearly see lo struggle with my letdown.
He is a big baby and is gaining well. 8.10 when born, 9.7 at 2 weeks, and I think he's at least 10 pounds if not more now at 4 weeks (dr is in a few days). he's generally mellow but he's getting fussier as he seems to be struggling more.
