Ok, I am pretty convinced I have OALD, but I just wanted to see what others thought. I have been trying to offer my dd only one breast per feeding, and even though this already seems to be helping, I have this fear that I will hurt my supply.
Her symptoms indicating OALD are:
choking/gagging while nursing
pulling off often while nursing
spits up often and is very gassy
lack of comfort nursing
and when she pulls off, my milk frequently sprays her in the face!
and BTW, her stools are mustard yellow and not frothy
I frequently felt very full in both breasts, this has subsided quite a bit, especially since just frequently feeding on one side.
Also, when should I switch sides? My first attempt was to block feed in two hour intervals, but if she nurses on one side, and then fusses and refuses the first side, but wants the second, should I let her nurse on the other side or continue to encourage nursing on the first?
