DS is almost 7 weeks old, have been exclusively BFing since birth. I pump in the morning so that DH can feed him for me once in the evening so I can get some kind of sleep! I've had forceful let down issues since he was born, and lately in the evenings he will latch on well for 10 mins or so, then push himself away with his fists and cry/pull my nipple. He'll chew his hands and root like crazy, but cry and push away at the nipple when I put him back on.
He's normally a very calm, alert, smiley baby but this just started in the last few days. I thought my supply had leveled out but I guess I was wrong!
I always hand express my milk when it lets down, and I block feed all day long, plus his head is always elevated and I use gripe water and he's on zantac for acid reflux. What else can I do?!?! I am SO FRUSTRATED and I do not want to give him any formula at all ever! It breaks my heart when he cries at the breast because I just want to be able to feed him without choking him! I should mention that he used to throw up after feedings occasionally but has since stopped, plus I burp him frequently during and after a feeding. His diapers are still seedy and yellow, plus he's gained almost 4 lbs since birth. I've seen a lactation specialist 3 times-by now we're becoming friends, haha. What else should I do? TIA!
