Okay, My LO is 3 weeks old and up until about a week ago was perfectly happy.
But now he has been having screaming jags were he cries for over an hour at a time, most generally when I nurse him he will stop the crying and it seems to comfort him but this means that at times he is nursing every 30 minutes when I know he isnt hungry! This is my third child but I've never been able to breastfeed past 5 months. With my first one she just wouldnt nurse and didnt gain weight so I pumped and fed her the pumped milk but I ended up drying up after about 5 weeks and with #2 I didnt have enough milk after 5 months so we had to start supplementing with formula I'm DETERMINED that I was to breastfeed this one atleast a year but he is a small guy (he was 5 10 at birth but so far he is gaining great, he was 7 pounds 1 oz at his 2 week check up) and I'm worrying that he might not be getting enough so he isnt satisfied.
BUT, I know I have milk! I leak fairly often still and at times he will pull off the breast and milk sprays everywhere and he has plently of wet diapers.
Honestly, If I knew that putting him on a bottle would make him stop crying I'm to the point of doing that and I really dont want to stop breast feeding!
Last night he pretty much cried from 11:30pm till about 5 am. I so dont want to quit. I know breast milk is by far the best and I always felt guilty about giving the bottle to the other two when I couldnt nurse. Any ideas anyone??
