I am hoping you guys can help me or give me advice. I have had a ton of problems breastfeeding my son but have finally rectified them all....and now there's a new one. My son is waking up for about 2 feedings a night. At his first feeding he is so hungry that he's vigorous and nurses well on one side and then he starts to try to poop and he arches his back and cries and screams. Even though he's hungry and rooting, he won't latch on because he needs to poop and is focusing on that. I know that babies don't have as many bowel movements once they get a little older, but he hasn't been pooping at all at night now and I can tell he's in pain. I was wondering if any of you have any ideas of something i can do in the early evening or something i can give him so he gets his poop out of the way and nurses well at night. its so frustrating because I end up having to pump and feed him EBM...which he will take. he just won't take the boob when he's gotta poop. He usually poops about 2-3 times a day so i know he's not really constipated...he just is in pain at night for some reason. Please give me advice.... i'm really frustrated. I was also wondering if any of you had tried prune juice mixed with BM or water. I haven't tried it but I heard it works.
