My son is 3 months and a week old and EBF. He has been a reasonably good feeder. But for the past 2 weeks he has taken to crying while feeding. The pattern most often is such - feed for 2 to 4 minutes just fine, cough, I burp him and then after that he starts to cry on feeding. Tricks like walking, or swaying while feeding help, but very little. Feeding while sleeping works well tho.
Doctors think it could be GERD and I am giving him Zantac, tho the situation hasn't improved over past 10 days or so of medication. He doesn't have many GERD symptoms as mentioned on https://www.llli.org/llleaderweb/lv/lvfebmar03p12.html except the crying during feeding part. He spits up a few times a day , but not much.
I am at loss how to resolve this and get him feed fine again.
Any thoughts, suggestions?
Also, I don't think it is a case of too much, or too fast milk as if anything my milk supply has regulated over the last 2 -3 weeks from earlier 2, 3 months of somewhat oversupply.
(Not sure if this is related - but since around 6 weeks, we notice some blood in his potty on and off( thin strand half an inch or so).I have been off dairy for 7 weeks and off soy for 2 weeks without much improvement on this front.)
