So this is my 3rd LO and I've obviously had OS with all 3 and am just now trying to get to the bottom of it! Lol! I did block feeding with my first two DSs, but their reflux was so bad, it didn't really seem to help with their fussiness. With my current LO, though, I really think her fussiness is all due to my OS and OALD.
1.) LO is 5 weeks old and currently nurses roughly every two hours. I've been doing two feeds in a row on one side before switching (so every 4 hours). Like many of you, I have one side (my left) that produces much more. I'm wondering if I should do two feeds in a row on my my left side, but then three feeds in a row on my right to make my over-producing breast get more engorged??
2.) Also, it seems like eventually (usually around 5 mos), my babies are able to empty the breast completely and sometimes want more. What do you do in this situation? Say they drained the right breast, and ate just a bit from the left - if I am still trying to block feed, would I then still feed from the right again the next time first, even though she'd had a bit from the left? I can very quickly go back into OS when feeding from both breasts!!
3.) Lastly (sorry so many questions) - when LO is nursing, she makes a clicking sound when she is drinking. Is this a latch problem? Is she taking in air do you think?
Thanks so much!
