My little man has been suffering with gas pain due to lactose overload. I was advised to pump a bit of milk in the morning (as apparently milk is higher in lactose in the morning, and foremilk is higher in lactose than hindmilk) and/or blockfeeding. I have been pumping 30mls from each breast before attaching him in the morning, and also blockfeeding throughout the day. Occasionally I offer both breasts as an experiment to check if the lactose is still causing a problem, and it still seems to. Because of the blockfeeding I have noticed my supply has dropped a lot. I was wondering:
1) Will my supply continue to drop?
2) Will he get enough to eat if it continues to drop, and he is only eating from one side? (I might have to do this for many more weeks until his tummy can handle it better)
3) Any advice for either this issue, or the lactose overload issue?
Thanks very much.
