Hi I am new to the forum and have turned to reading everything I can to get me through the difficult times with breastfeeding. Thank you all for your insight.
I believe my DS born 2/13 is clusterfeeding but last night he seemed to be in pain and his stomach was very hard and he was wailing and archung and grunting and it was awful.. He does not burp easily but I get up and walk around and try to get 1 burp per feed. I do not always get it.
From 1-4am he went back and forth from breast to breast for 6-10 minutes each breast (he usually does 10 mins or less on each breast at feedings)
If he has gas am I making this situation worse by feeding him all the time?
Whenever I put him on my shoulder for a burp he starts to root again. Today he is feeding every 1-2 hours and I am able to put him down quite easily in the swing He doesn't really spit up alot at all but he does have very forceful farts and poops. I think he passes much of his gas that way instead of burping.
I believe I have enough Milk as he was born 6/14 and went down to 6/7 after 7days and 1 week later was 7/11. Thanks for any help
