Hi! I'm a first-time mom of a one-month old sweet baby boy...
I'm pretty certain I have OS & OALD... it's been really frustrating at times. To be honest, the excessive leaking has been the worst. It's been getting better, but it's still ridiculous. I can't wear a bra for more than a day... they get soaked within hours and that's with 2 nursing pads in each cup. I only have 3 nursing bras, so I have to be sure to wash them every day.
Anyway, my actual question is not about leaking... my DS has been feeding every 2-3 hours on average, sometimes 4. He has sometimes eaten for as little as 5 minutes at a time , and been satisfied for 2 or 3 hours. Is that normal? I think maybe the milk is just coming out so fast that he gets enough quickly?? I don't know if that's ok or not.
Additional info that may be relevant... he currently has a cold, and his dirty diapers are back to yellow (they were green for a bit which I was told was cuz of the cold).
