certainly didn't think i'd be posting in the newborn thread again so quickly!
anyhow, i am a little confused as to exactly what oald is. i have tried looking it up in "the womanly art of bf'ing" and another bf'ing book i have and can't find it. is it also called something else? i think we may be experiencing this, but am not sure. when she eats i can here her gulping really fast and then she will pull off and choke and gasp and catch her breath. i try and catch her before she gets to that point and pull her off to let her swallow. i also try to sit her up more while feeding. it really only seems to happen in the beginning of the feed. she feeds twice on each breast, at each feeding. being burped in between. she doesn't seem to have any problems with burping, gassiness, or spit up, which is why i'm not sure if it's oald. i thought those were symptoms that came along with that. we really aren't having problems with it, i just want to know if this is what is going on, and if so, are there other things i can do to make her more comfortable while nursing? tia
