Funny suctiony noise while nursing?
Hi, guys. Sorry to bug you again! I just thought I'd update and babble about a concern I've had for about a week now. Anyway!
DS is doing great; 17 lbs at 2 months (born at 9, almost 10), blah blah blah. Fat, chunky, needy thing. He's grumpy and cooing and all that baby good stuff. Anyway - okay. Here's our newest issue:
When he is on my boob, he does okay: sometimes, latching takes 10 times to succeed, but we get it eventually .... thing is, he makes this weird ... suctiony noise? I'm not sure how to describe it. I try to fix his positioning, I take him off and put him back on, but it's just ... it's -so- weird, and to be honest, obnoxious and grating to listen to when I'm having a near panic attack while being concerned that he's not getting enough milk. It almost sounds like a hiccup against my boob, or like smacking his lips with poor suction on my boob, some weird ... I can't even say. Should I be concerned? I'm still having OALD problems, but that seems to have settled down in that he doesn't pull off during every let down anymore. I'm just super worried about him getting enough to eat. (I burp him and he burps still, and sometimes spits up, so I assume he's getting enough, I just ...) Bleh.
Hope everyone's Easter was lovely!
