Good evening everyone,
I am EBF my 13 week old son. We've had troubles since the beginning, including fast key down, over supply, under supply, severe reflux, and a very tight upper lip tie.
The last two weeks have been especially difficult. He has started to STTN, from 10 or 11 to 4 or 5. Along with this has come an increase in nursing during the day , as in constant! His reflux and diaper output have both decreased. This morning I took him in to weigh ( he gained 3/4 ounce a day since last visit ) before and after nursing. He nursed at 5, 730 until after 8 , 930 then again at 1015 at the office. After TEN minutes on one breast and about Five on the other, he only took in .... ONE OUNCE.
What could possibly be going on??
I've always nursed on demand and have never supplemented. I drink plenty of fluids and take the Gaia lactation support.
I feel like we should run to the store for formula. I've nursed probably a total of 8 hrs, I'm exhausted, my older son and husband are neglected, and my baby seems to be suffering.
Thanks so much.
