My 6 week old, during the day, handles my OALD like a champ. I have started block feeding to ensure she gets plenty of hindmilk and help regulate my supply.
So far it seems to be working. Her diapers remain yellow (not green) and she gains an average of 8.5 oz per week, and my breast do not get engorged like they did.
Our problem is in the evenings. For some reason she becomes irritated and I become frusterated. She does not handle the OALD so I pump through the first letdown. Even then she remains irritated, pushing the nipple out and quickly resucking, twisting, pulling, crying - causing sore nipples. It's as if she is upset that milk is coming out at all.
Is it possible she is just trying to pasify? If so how else can I comfort her?
