Subj:Too little feeding, frequent feeding and fussy due to gas
This is about ou son..He nurses for about 6-7 minutes.then
fusses.cries.i have to take him off the breast, then try amuse
him or wait until he clears up his discomfort-mostly poops or
tries to. seems he has some gas from me.i burp him also and he
spits or hiccups.when i reintroduce breats (coz 5 minute sor so
nursing is too less and i am afraid if he is getting enough,
whiel previous weight checks for 10 minute nursing were fine,
indicating weight gain), i am worried about these 5 minute and
irregualr periodic nursing (he is 6 week old.this second time he
cries or fusses though the breast is in his mouth.
i treid amusing him by palying sounds to him or singing
itis getting ahrd to know why he fusses or wouldnt sleep or
wouldnt nurse.we try real hard my walking him etc to soothe him
or make him sleep.
he does spit out some milk and vomits some.(not always, once or
twice a week)
I even reduced the kind of foods ii eat to avoid his gassiness.right now i am only on tomato, lentils,soup, lactaid,rice ,apple,oatmeal and white bread,what else can i cut down, to see whats the culprit for gas.
any help greatly appreciated
