I have a 5week old. I've got a few problems going on with her. First she has a yeast rash on her bum that the dr. just gave me cream for. Yesterday and today she had some blood in her diapers. The dr. asked me if it was in the stools, ok how do you tell that with a bf baby? All the stools are loose and I just see blood in it. He thinks it's a fissure. She is a pretty fussy baby. I wouldn't say colic cause she doesn't scream for hours but she is really fussy. Every stool since birth has been green. A couple days ago she had a couple of watery ones. Basically, everything I read in my nursing book says that all of her symptoms say it's something in my diet. The dr. says no. Well, he's telling me to see if the blood goes away and the rash after a week and if not then try eliminating dairy from my diet. So, her symptoms are green stools, stuffy nose, fussiness, yeast rash on bum, and blood in stools.HOWEVER...she is gaining weight just fine. She was born 10lbs. 3oz. and is already 13lbs. 5oz. So, I just don't know who to listen to the dr. or the nursing books. I feel like the dr. just doesn't know enough about nursing babies. Well, my next problem is that she seems to have a problem with my letdown. But, mostly only on my left breast. Occasionaly on my right but almost always on my left. She pulls off choking and gasping for air and then screams her head off. Then when I try to put her back on she has her mouth wide open looking for it and screaming even though it's in her mouth and she just won't latch back to it. So, it seems that it's coming out too fast but when I take it out it's not spraying. I've tried different holds and leaning back with her on top etc. and it doesn't really help. I pump sometimes once first thing in the morning but other than that I can't because she's always on me. The only way she'll stay sleeping during the day is on top of me. So....sorry so long but any advice is appreciated.
