    Default Gassy, unhappy baby (and toddler)

    I am the mother of an almost 3 year old girl (on 9/24) and a 4 week old boy. I continue to nurse my daughter as well as my son. My son is having several issues: he was born 4 weeks early and although he has gained weight (born 6 lbs 10 oz - now over 9 lbs) he has alot of gas and fussiness. I can hear his rumbling tummy. He spits out alot even though I spend alot of time burping. My milk just gets all over the place. I really want to nurse him successfully but he doesn't sleep well (and neither do I). My husband has to get up at 4 a.m. to leave for work and he can't help as much as he wants. WHAT CAN I DO?

    I forgot to mention that my daughter is also quite gassy but isn't choking when breastfeeding.


    Mommy to a princess, Isabella Sofia, born on 09/24/2007 and a prince, Lucas Gabriel, born on 08/04/2010.
