My son is 2 months old today. I just found this website and have a ton of questions.
My right breast has quite an oversupply of milk. It is visibly larger than the left. When I pump, I can usually get 5 ounces within 2-3 minutes on my right breast. And on the left, I will only get 1-2 ounces in 10 minutes. To correct this, I've been starting Lucas on the left breast at each feeding. This has not seemed to help. Any ideas?
Also, he is still waking up every 3 hours or so to feed. I've been told that he should be sleeping longer at night. Should I be worried that he's not getting enough?
Third question...he has been really fussy for the past 2 weeks or so. He will scream/cry as he is feeding. So I will take him off and burp him thinking it is just gas. He may or may not burp. So I put him back down, he will latch on for a bit, but then scream/cry/push away and pull himself to me all at the same time (if that makes sense). What does this mean?!? We've been doing mylicon drops to see if it helps...it doesn't seem to be making too much of a difference.
Last night he was particularly fussy, so we decided to supplement with some formula. He took 8 ounces! I couldn't believe it! Could this mean that he is just not getting enough milk??
Output is good (both urine and stool). He is gaining weight well.
Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks!!
