MrsChezek ...I know how you are feeling...same thing keeps me going...I just think how much I wanted him and I love him so much but some days are very hard and exhausting...hope H starts sleeping through the night again soon...

AFM..Nick is going to be 5 weeks tomorrow...he has been very fussy in the past few days...he is having tummy issues and is having hard time having a BM on his own...per doctor I had to use suppositories few times and now he is on meds and it does not seem that is helping...he strains and strains and strains and has gas but just is not able to have BM...on meds it takes him several hours...sometimes he screams like he is in pain and there is nothing I can do...I try to hold his legs and massage his belly...hate to see him in pain..

Congratulations, Zee!!

So sorry Nick has been having tummy issues, Sasha. That must be hard for you to see him struggling.

Congratulations Zeez

Sasha - just a quick question, about his tummy aches... does he drink a lot, or does he drink very little?
I ask because my LO had tummy troubles because he was drinking too much.
When that happens, the milk gets pushed through the intestines much too quickly, causing a lot of gas, and baby doesnīt get to utilize the nourishment in the milk well enough, causing baby to pee a lot, and having a lot of stomach pains...

4oz seems like a lot for a 5 week old. Hayden drinks 3.5oz and she's 4 months! Is this breast milk or formula? Are you putting extra in the bottle and he's stopping himself at 4oz or is that how much you put in the bottle and he drinks it all? Hayden will drink whatever we put in front of her so we have to measure it out for her and anything over 3.5oz she either spits up or is uncomfortable. She eats 9 times a day but usually from the breast so I cannot tell you how much she takes at each feed

Hmm.
The advice given to me about all the gas in his belly, is basically to try to get more cream into each feed (breastmilk then).
I was advised to only feed him from one breast during a feed, which would result in him getting more cream and therefore more nutrients per feed.
If he drinks a lot, but there isnīt a lot of nutrients in it, then the body tries to push the milk through faster to make room for more, resulting in a vicious cycle where baby is always hungry, but not getting enough nutrients from the milk...

He was just over 3 months old when we started his swim lessons.

I hope his tummy gets better soon

Hayden bit me while nursing for the first time last night She's done it several times since and it's been a very frustrating 24 hours! Can't seem to teach her not to bite...she doesn't have teeth yet - thank god!!! So she just clamps down super hard with her gums. It hurts a lot! I hope this isn't the end of our breastfeeding journey...

Have you tried unlatching her when she does it? Apparently they usually learn pretty quickly what the problem is. There is tons of good info on what to do
