Hello! I'm new here and looking for some advice. My daughter is 5, close to 6 weeks old. She has been a great nurser from birth and is gaining weight steadily. Around 2 weeks she began throwing up, never more than once a day but every other day or every day. Throwing up A LOT, not just spit up, not projectile vomiting. I spoke with her pediatrician and they suggested not feeding her as much, not really a suggestion I was thrilled with because I've been nursing on demand and don't want to cut her short. Other than that, they said not to worry because she is gaining weight well and doesn't seem upset due to the vomiting.
The past two days, I believe she has started her 6 week growth spurt because she's been increasingly fussy, sleeping more during the day, and eating more often. She has also been comfort nursing a lot more, will fall asleep on the breast, comfort nursing multiple times a day. I don't mind allowing her to do this but my problem is this, she is throwing up more, once a day everyday. I believe she is over eating during her cluster feeding/comfort nursing sessions.
We have chosen not to use pacifiers so I'm wondering what I should do, allow her to constantly nurse and deal with the daily vomiting or not feed her as much and deal with her crying, fussing and looking for the breast. Any advice would be great. Thanks!!
