I am posting this in two areas hoping to get some answers..
My son has taken to the breast like a champ...maybe a little too well though. He does eat every 2-3 hours continuously, however the problem lies with the fact that he gulps alot down quickly and my flow is SUPER fast.... he throws up what I feed him most of the time..although some has to be getting in as he is 2 weeks and 2 oz past his birth weight, and he pees and poops constantly... however he is fussy after a feeding with all of the gas and I feel that I have tried everything!
I give him one side at a time to allow him to empty the breast, so that he can pacify on it as well when he is gassy
Most of the time I can express some milk manually before he gets on there to help the flow...although it doesn't seem to me that it actually slows it down
I sit him up when I feed him and never lay him flat on his back unless I am changing his diaper
I was burping him but found that he threw up worse so now I just gently sit him up or put him on my shoulder and rub his back a bit, and he can usually bring up a burp on his own
And I give him Gripe water occasionally to help with the gas and have tried giving him a soother after he eats to keep his food down....
Anything else I can do? Even with all of this he still throws up but at the Dr.'s they said that his tummy felt fine and he was just overeating and that I should try to limit my milk supply...I am however obviously skeptical of that and wouldn't even know how to limit my supply...so any suggestions? Thanks!
