Hi! I am a mom of an almost 3 month old baby. I am trying to correct my overflow/OALD issues. I initially fed on one side per feeding starting at birth (given that I had OALD with previous babies). Then things started getting out of control at around 6 weeks probably with a growth spurt. I settled things down with 4 hour blocks, and then he seemed hungrier so back to one breast per feeding.
Again things were out of control -- the baby wants to feed all the time (every 1-2 hours), is really gassy, not sleeping, and not passing bowel movements. Very colicky. Burping continuously which wakes him up.
Other than the overnight feeds and the morning feeds he is not having a lot of gagging episodes...primarily because he is pulling off his good latch and feeding on the nipple only.
So, I have resumed 4 hour blocks, and he is hating it!!! I know that there is milk there, but he refuses to feed on that breast a second time. Tonight I had to walk around the house with him on the breast to get him to feed on the breast. He seems really angry that the milk is not fast enough. After 1 1/2 hours of trying to feed him on the appropriate breast I gave in and gave him the fuller one and he loved it!!! But he really needs the hind milk. This has happened a couple of times in the past day.
Do you have any suggestions?
