Ok this might all sound like it's no problem at all but i'm a bit worried.
Elias is 9 wks old and exclusively bf. He's had about 4 bottles of ebm (2oz each) when i had to go somewhere quickly or something like that. Otherwise it's always been breast. He is gaining weight, having enough wet/poopy diapers and everything is fine. BUT..today he's been unusually quiet and content..lol..i know you say why am i worrying? He is always been very fussy and very hungry all the time and that's fine because of that i have an excellent milk supply and a good freezer stash.
This morning i went out food shopping. It snowed and was freezing so i fed him, left 2oz of ebm for dh to feed and left. I was letting down in the store like crazy. Took me about 2 hours. Elias feeds every hour or so when he's not sleeping. When i came back, i was expecting a crying baby. Nope, he was content watching tv with dad and he didn't cry once of hunger. I fed him when i got home and he took a nap in my arms.
Well the thing is he has continued to be this freakin good kid!! lol..he's not nursing as often and just hangs out quietly in his swing or his bouncy chair until he's hungry. Now he's tired and i'm nursing him so that's fine, but about 30 min ago he kinda fussed so i proceeded to nurse him. As soon as he felt the tip of the nipple he gagged! It wasn't even in his mouth! what's that all about?
I know i have enough milk and that's not what worries me. It's the fact that he's not wanting to nurse as often. My last child nursed all the time until he weaned at a year old! I'm not used to having a kid just not nurse and be just fine and dandy while i'm engorged out of my mind! And i just got a pump in style from freecycle and pumped 2 bags of breastmilk already. I know that's making me make more milk but i don't want to lose a single drop..lol
What do you ladies think?
