My nearly 2 week old poops A LOT. Like 15 times a day. He's a great eater, has a great latch, pees frequently and is gaining weight like a champ, so everyone tells me he's fine. And maybe he is. But he's fussy and gassy and seems uncomfortable. I have an overabundance of milk (again, people tell me there's no such thing) and that leads to gulping and gagging, etc. I had been feeding on demand and he just didn't seem too happy. Today I tried to space him out, feeding every 3 hours, and he seems a lot more peaceful and comfortable. So.... even though they say you can't over-nurse, CAN you over-nurse? Do some babies need to slow down? Is he maybe getting too much foremilk? It seemed like he was in this cycle.... nurse, bloat, fuss, poop, fuss, nurse, bloat, and on and on. I want to keep my supply up and do what's best for the baby, but I'm wondering if we should keep spacing out the feedings.
I nursed my daughter for 26 months. The pediatrician said she had reflux and put her on Zantac. I'm wondering if my son has reflux, too, or if neither of them have it and they simply nursed too frequently.
