My LO often gulps when first going to the breast but soon after he is down to just little sucks at the breast, and falls asleep soon after. He seems content after the feeding, but will spit up soon after, or have a big burp. But I feel as though ALL the milk comes at that time, because even after such a short feeding, I am unable to express much more, and pumping only gets a few drops (havent had much success pumping yet anyways). He does push away from the breast at the start, and when he latches, is mostly just on the nipple but if left on the breast, he seems to get a letdown or 2 after the initial heavy flow. I feel as though I have the Overactive LD but not enough milk, as he is often hungry soon after each feeding, and when put to the breast, I cannot hear his sucking sounds nor does he have the open, pause motion.
He has at least 6-8 wet diapers in a day - but lately goes a day or so inbetween poops which are watery, and close to an orangey colour? He is stuffy, but seems to be coming from his throat, not just his nose. He was 8.5 at birth, and now at 6 weeks 2 days is about 9.14.
Some other symptoms he has are a straining/pushing noise ... rarely with farts but sometimes a fart. Cries and cries soon after feedings, gets a red red face, only wants the boob, but still pushes away when im trying to latch him. Couging at times (when not feeding). His spit up was brown once.
