Argh! My LO started having green poo on Sunday (thanks to here, I started looking ). Anyway...as I look into reasons why, LO & I seem to be having that oversupply fore/hind imbalance. He's gassy (both ends), chokes, gulps, we make a mess, and he started spitting up a bit. He also had been having explosive full poo diapers all day long (and I mean all day....not just a little streak in every diaper but almost a blowout 8+ times a day).
So, again thanks to here, I stopped pumping that one bottle each day (I only pumped 1 or 2 x ea. day....and would get about 3-4 ounces after he would finish nursing) and started block feeding (4 hrs or 2 full feedings per side). His poo just started to turn olive green, and then more yellowish. He seems to not be exploding every diaper. And he hadn't seemed to choke as much....still gassy (I just say he takes after his dad. ). I was feeling good about it....
NOW he seems to be hitting 6 wk growth spurt. Do I keep block feeding? Go back to regular? And to think I worried about supply....it seems like I had to constantly worry about it with the twins and a couple nurses were sure I'd have to supplement with this one (barely did with the twins tho), so I was worried about it now.
And, if this is/was oversupply...how do you pump to have some relief or to be able to go to your hair appt with out starting the problem over?
