I just realized I have had an oversupply for a while now, and I have been taking it out on my poor son. He had latching problems to start with, and when I finally got him breastfeeding, I thought it was great.
At first I thought it was an undersupply.. because he'd eat small amounts sometimes, but then want to feed all afternoon to make up for it. I think the inconsistent feeding, and me not remembering which breast I used last, caused an over supply. When I thought it was an undersupply, the pediatrician thought I was crazy and wasn't concerned about the spit-ups, because he was gaining well. It's hard to explain how much he throws up/spits up, and I don't think she realized how much I meant.
He has been struggling at the breast at times, and throwing up A LOT. He recently gained 2 lb in about 1 week. I feel really bad, because when he would struggle, especially at night when I am tired and frustrated, I would try to hold him still and get him to stay on. I did not realize that was part of the problem...
I am just starting to block feed.
He has also started sleeping a lot during the day, and wanting to stay up at night. I have to fix that problem, too.
I hope things get better. My poor DS is about 2 months, and I hate that I have made him struggle with this problem since he was 2 weeks old.
