so several things going on...
one my ds has had green poop for at least 3 weeks. i'va read all about hindmilk/foremilk imbalance on kellymom and in dr newmans books. i've blocked i've pumped before he eats, breast compressions, massage. yesterday i was manipulating my breast after he ate and was getting fussy and i could get really thick milk - hindmilk i'm thinking. so i kept putting him back on the breast because obviously that's where the good stuff was.. but he just was not having it. it seems he's not interested in really sucking to get to the second or third letdown. - i can pump through my first letdown and he's satisfied to nurse for at least 15 min after that. why can't my breasts seem to let the good milk go? and/or why is he not sucking hard enough to get to the nutritious milk.
he is gaining but not as much as he should. or as much as i thiink he should.
can anybody help me? has anyone ever heard of someone not making hindmilk?
today i'm thinking he must be either going through a growth spurt - he's 6 weeks and 4 days. and he has been on my breast all day. he will fall asleep and i will try to put him in his crib for a nap. 5 min later he is having a fit and the only thing that will calm him is my breast and he will suck for about 5 min and then just want to lay his head on my breast. i would really like to get up for a few min and not hear him cry like i'm killing him for not letting him sleep on me.
i even went so far as to get a bottle that the hospital gave me and feed him 15ml from it and then took it away because that is not what i wanted to do.
i'm at the braking point with why i can't get my son to have a normal bowel movement.
