    Default detective work(baby fussy at breast ..why?

    here it goes any advice would be awesome:

    birth weight 8 10 oz
    current weight 13 7
    gaining weight at visits
    normally pees 8-12 wets day
    green poopies( and wet better since we eliminated milk from my diet)

    Champ eater at night, lots of gulping and even a little milk out of the nose during let down, usually only takes one breast per feeding at night. Im not sure how many times she eats probably 4 times a night. It may seem like a lot but we co sleep and I dont mind because I feel rejected during day. Morning time lo wakes we change diaper and then try for a feed, only feeds laying down and after struggling through let down(gulping , sometimes a milk though nose) she pulls off and on until she becomes ravenous. This is when I usually break out the pump. This weekend However I am trying to avoid the bottle as It may be the culprit to all this, so I have a SNS for use only after let down. Im confused though because she has a hard suck and after her let down I did some manual expression and there was plenty of spray. So here is my worry...I DONT KNOW WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. Initially I thought she was frustrated at the slow flow after let down now Im not sure.
    My little May baby just turned THE BIG ONE!
