I have a question.
My lo was born at 36 weeks. He's a little guy with a tiny mouth. I'm pretty sure he's latching on good because I'm not sore, but he tends to slide down a little after a minute or two. I think that may be because my forceful letdown. He'll nurse for a good 10 minutes most times...sometimes more, sometimes less.
The problem is he's having a mix of yellow and green stools. Most times its mostly green. I know this is probably because he's getting too much foremilk. I've tried nursing only on one side in four hour blocks and I've tried to just get him to nurse for longer periods of time. Neither have worked.
His two week checkup is this coming Monday and I'm really hoping he'll be back at his birth weight (5lb 12 oz). I'm afraid, being a preemie, that his peds doctor will want me to supplement with formula.
Is there anything else I can try?
