I returned to work three weeks ago and have been pumping milk for my 3 month old. He is very fussy after bottle feeding and his poop has changed from several daily mustard-colored stools, to stools every 4-5 days that are giant and dark green and stink like the devil. He is gassy all the time and he scruntches up and cries a ton during the day. He's already on Prevacid for reflux- and we give mylicon too- but this seems to be a newer problem. Is it possible I am not getting enough hindmilk when I pump? How do I know? I have a pump-in-style and always feel like I am not getting enough (I have to squeeze at my breasts while pumping and really work at them). With the suction up too high though- I bleed (I have small nipples and very light skin). The milk looks thin and has a very thin layer of fat when it cools. Suggestions?
As a side note- we had thrush for the first two months (so sorry to anyone who goes through that), and he was always fussy- but it is the poop and the fact that it appears to be the bottle fed milk that's the problem that has me wondering if it is a pumping issue.
