Again, with our 3 week old, we saw the Pedi's RN today because she had a few cases of vomiting over the weekend. It seems like a TON comes out (enough for me to have to change clothes completely, as well as her), usually after she eats and its happened like 5-6 times the past 4 days. It really scared me because of the volume.
The RN said that since she's gaining weight, its not that frequent and its not projectile (like going across the room) its most likely because she's overeating at the breast. However, my LO LOVES to comfort nurse, uses me as a pacifier to fall asleep and when she's fussy, the only thing that really calms her is the breast. The RN told us to use a pacifier, but our pedi suggested she use her own fists (which she can now put in the vicinity of her mouth and suck a few times). I don't know what to do, sometimes she gets angry at my boob if milk is coming out and she wants to nurse and its so heartbreaking to hear her just sit at my boob and cry. Is there anything we can do, or is the pacifier the best route?
From my previous thread, I have a slight problem with overactive letdown but my supply seems to be evening out (not as engorged!). I try to run off the letdown before I put her on to comfort nurse...
