Re: Desperate, tired and confused on new baby
You sound frustrated with your situtation. From what you are describing it doesn't sound like you have a baby with food allergies/sensitivities. Maybe you have a slight hindmilk/foremilk imbalance. Nursing on one side per feed like your are doing can help. Maybe you should try block feeding as well. Only nursing on one side for 3 or 4 hours at a time. Also keep in mind any of these changes that you do can take about 2 weeks or so to notice any changes. The co-sleeping mention in the pp is a life saver for some. If you are not comforable with that, have you tried swaddling your baby when he sleeps? I also am thinking you may have a fussy baby like mentioned previously. You may want to check out Dr. Sears' Fussy Baby book. It was a livesaver for me.
Hope some of this helps,
You're not alone.
