My poor DS, 5 weeks, has such bad gas even the pedi. was amazed by the sound of his tummy. He is inconsoleable because of it at times. I believe I have OALD because my letdowns still hurt (sometimes a lot) and are immediate. DS choked all the time at first but has gotten better (usually only chokes 1 or 2 times per feed now) and gulps frantically.
I've seen posts talk about nursing in a reclined position where baby lays on top on mom. I can't envision this working for a young one without head control. Is that only for older babies?
