I want to say that I'm no longer having a problem with TJ being fussy after his 9pm(or around) feeding. But I do have a new problem.
Anytime I feed him in the morning (after we wake up) or any time he's been asleep for 3+ hours, I'm guessing I have a forceful letdown. He'll latch on great and then a few minutes later, he'll I guess gulp a few times, and then pull off and milk comes spraying out. I put a burp cloth over my nipple until its no longer spraying and I'll put him back on. Am I doing the right thing?
In the first 3 weeks of breastfeeding him, he would do that, but then when he was 3 1/2-4 weeks it seemed to have stopped, and now its returned (He's 4 weeks 4 days and it just started up again yesterday).
When he does gulp and I put him back on, he'll nurse for a while before pulling off. I then burp him, and he'll usually spit up and then I'll offer the boob again to him and 99% of the time, he takes it back.
Is there anything I can do to help him cope with my let down? Could he just be so glad that he's feeding again that he forgets to take it easy?
I dont know if this has anything to do with how he's nursing, but he's been up a lot more during the day. Usually 2 1/2 -3 hours before taking a short 1 hour nap.
