With Joshua I had OALD and oversupply. I had to blockfeed, and eventually my supply was manageable.
Right now Jonah nurses on one side per feeding (always has). I def. have too much foremilk this time, and a forceful let-down. He is very nervous at the breast, swallows air, etc. We are also dealing with a poor latch (some of which is because he is nervous about latching on fully and getting sprayed). I can only nurse him when he is just waking up, otherwise he screams and arches away.
His poops are always frothy and green. I'm afraid to blockfeed though because my supply seems to go way down in the evenings (from 4pm on). Plus, my breasts always seem soft. There can't be that much milk in there. He gets super fussy, and mad when my milk doesn't letdown right away. I have to rock him until he is almost asleep and then try to get him on. He nurses on both sides in the evening, and never seems content.
Should I still attempt to blockfeed? If not, how much longer will this be an issue (at what age do they get over the strong flow/foremilk tummy cramsp?)
I do nurse him laying back.
