Well, here I am. Bummer. I had it with dd and now I have it again. Only this time no nipple shield and no pacifier, so he gets the full brunt of my OS and my OALD. He wants to nurse to sleep, but after his 2 fussy periods at night and in the morning, its hard for him to fall asleep and he wants to suck for a really long time but he keeps getting overactive letdown after overactive letdown until he has had way too much milk and he spits up massive quantities and then wants back at the breast. I can't help but think that all this sucking will further exacerbate the problem. I want him to nurse to sleep--dd didn't and it was hell for months getting into a pattern where she would fall asleep. And, that's how he really wants to go to sleep, and can fall asleep that way most of the time.
I have been block feeding--only offering one breast for 2 hours and then the other for the next 2. Sometimes he nurses every 30 minutes, sometimes he goes 2 hours.
I am even further worried because I had low supply issues later in dd's first year, and I don't want to make a bad problem worse. This is unfortunate, but I would much rather have more milk than less.
His diapers are normal yellow seedy poops, not green, which makes me wonder how the heck my supply works exactly .
