sigh...I am pretty sure I have OALD. Symptoms:
1. Pulls off often while nursing to cough and take this gasping breath
2. When she pulls off, streams of milk go everywhere. Counted 5 once.
3. She is so gassy. It shocks my DH how loud her passing gas is. And she spits up so much more then my older DD did (who was formula fed )
4. Definitely doesn't comfort nurse. There are times when she just cries and cries at the breast (especially by the end of the day).
Don't know if this is a symptom or not, but she rarely goes more then 1.5 hours for her next feeding. She is 6.5 weeks old and I hear of other BF babies her age going 3 hours between feedings I only dream about 3 hours between feedings!
She used to have green poops, but when it was suggested to me to only feed her on one side per feeding, they went back to yellow. The only time I don't have too much of a problem is at night when we are side nursing. I don't know if it's because she is tired (we are cosleeping, so I can get to her pretty fast, lol) or the position. Sometimes I just want to give up because it's so draining sometimes (especially with my 22 month old running around). I have a friend that tells me this is all normal, but it just doesn't feel or seem normal to me.
