I think I may be dealing w/ OALD. However, I notice a few differences when I am comparatively reading others' posts. My situation includes:
I can hear my son gulping milk and air, sometimes lots of air, after let down;
He stops to choke and cough at least twice per feeding;
He is gassy, painfully so, and will stop nursing to pass or poop, but he screams;
I don't spray milk, but it does drip fast, and will leak from the other boob while I'm feeding ds;
He has never had green poop, just normal BF stools;
I have to hold onto my breast the whole time he nurses, otherwise, he starts "clicking" and loses his latch. I think this is because by holding my breast, it's slowing the flow of milk.
So, because of several discrepancies, I am unsure of whether this is OALD. Should I try block feeding, and will it hurt to do so even if I might not have an OALD? It breaks my heart that he has to go through this every time he nurses (which is every 2-3 hours; 4-5 @ night).
Any help is greatly appreciated.
