    I swear I have an OS and my 4 week old does these exact same things.

    I just posted on another thread that I had read that os issues tend to regulate itself by 3 months. But I would definitely put a call into a lactation consultant (a good one!) to confirm that. With my 3rd child, I blocked nursed one onside for 2 nursings. With my 4th, I am having to go 12 hours. Every child is different.
