Re: Did I just dry up?
NO mama, you did not just spontaneoulsy dry up yesterday. think about how ridiculous that sounds from a biological perspective - milk does not spontaneoulsy dry up for no reason, or babies would not survive.
it sounds a lot more like normal newborn behavior. frustrating, for sure, but normal. maybe a growth spurt.
many babies never burp or spit up (mine didn't). most babies go through nights like this (mine did). pooping and peeing all night means he WAS getting milk. keep him on the breast all day today as much as he wants, keep yourself hydrated & nourished, and you'll be fine. get a TV show or book you like to while away the time you're going to spend nursing.
edited to add: it is also never too early to teach polite nursing behavior. my LLL leader told me that nursing is hte very first thing we ever teach our babies, and so it's ok, even necessary, to keep taking them off and putting them back on with a better latch. i think the same thing applies to the clawing & scratching. obviously a little baby is not really aware of what it's doing but you can restrain the arms and do other very gentle behavioral cues about the things that drive you nuts.
