Re: Baby cries while breastfeeding
It sounds like your issues are predominantly- maybe even exclusively- during the daylight hours. Correct? If so, is there anything you're doing differently during the day vs. the night? Maybe using a different nursing position?
Don't worry too much about week-to-week fluctuations in weight gain. There's a reason that pediatricians don't weigh babies every week, or every day, and that's because it is normal for weight gain to vary from week to week. And your baby's weight gain is still completely in the normal range; see http://kellymom.com/bf/normal/weight-gain-metric/ for average weight gain in breastfed babies. In fact, according to that chart, 170 g/week is completely average.
