my son is 3 1/2 months old and as of a few days ago has been fussing at my breasts..it started with the left and now it's both. he arches ..squirms..whines..pulls of with a smack ..he cringes as well. i took him to the doc but of course he didn't do it in front of the doc b/c he started crying and used my bb's to comfort himself. Doc didn't know what was going on and just guessed that it's reflux. He also has only gained 3 ounces in the past 2 weeks..which the doc and i think maybe he has gained more but then recently lost some before i took him in. I did just start my period and now it's over but just last sunday i was able to really squirt milk out..and then today i had problems squirting from my right. I have been under a lot of stress but am feeling better. Could it be b/c of my period?? do i have a slow letdown?? has he become lazy b/c i give him a bottle of ebm every afternoon as a treat and now he likes the bottle better? i just read that if you supplement you shouldn't use a bottle..is that my mistake?? i have slow flow nipples on it. if i haven't fed him in a few hours i would get 5 to 6 ounces when i pumped and if he's been nursing i will get 1 1/2 ounces about 10 minutes after he's done. i've had a couple of supply issues but built my supply back up. So is this something to do with his age? could he be draining me faster? i rarely feel full anymore..which i read is normal...so any ideas?
