My 2 week old has been nursing well until a few days ago. He latches on well and begins to nurse, but begins to grunt shortly thereafter and grows increasingly frustrated, kicking his legs, turning red and eventually crying and coming off the nipple. This usually continues on and off after we're done feeding... The sudden fussing, squirmy and redness. I try to burp him every time after feedings, but it only results in him crying even harder.
I've had a little engorgement, and every now and then while nursing, he'll unlatch and milk will stream out of his mouth, and he'll gag. Ive also had angled nipples after feedings. Thinking this was all due to fast letdown, I've changed up positions so he's more above the nipple. But we're still having problems.
On Monday we saw the doctor and he had gained a pound since birth. He nurses every 2-3 hours on average and has 10-15 diaper changes a day. Poop goes between seedy yellow and runny yellow. Sleeps well, 2-3 hour stretches several times a day/night.
Help! Any suggestions on bringing some relief for baby???
