I got up yesterday morning, and 2-month-old dd had yellow poops, after what felt like an eternity of nothing but shades of green! I looked at her schedule from the day before and found she had wanted to eat about every 2-1/2 hrs, so I would feed her on the same side twice since my block was 3 hours. She usually eats about every 3 hrs but I think she was making up for her first 6-hour stretch of sleep the night before. We've had yellow poops again this morning. So here are my latest round of questions...
Can I feed her like this on a routine basis? With 2 feedings on a side before switching? I had read that moms will nurse like this to help control an oversupply, but I don't think I've had supply problems, and I certainly don't want to decrease what I have.
I've had some engorgement and leaking at night. Should I just express by hand to relieve some of the discomfort or can I pump a little off?
And, finally, I do pump for bottles a couple of times a week when I have mom's night out. I had just been pumping one breast empty after nursing on the other, but now I don't know when is best to pump so I can get a complete feeding if I feed her in this block.
Thanks for everyone's support...this forum has been more helpful than any lc I've talked to.
