over the last week my baby has been really fussy after he would nurse for a few minutes and would get really mouthy. He would stop nursing and would not eat... no matter how hard I tried. Also this morning after I managed to feed him he started to spit up a little and it came out really clear. Almost watery.... Then tonight while I was pumping for later use, my milk came out looking like cloudy water....
Does anybody have any advise? I thought about going to see my OB doctor in the morning, and pump while im there to show them... But I wanted to ask on here to see what you guys think or suggest I should do... I do not want to stop breast feeding yet, but I feel like I am being forced to cuz my baby is not nursing as long as he should and gets so fussy that I make a formula bottle for him to drink.
Please help me!!!

Keep up the BF and throw away the bottles if you are committed. there are a million and 1 reasons why a baby can be fussy. BM comes out thin at first and you should get some white milk at the end of the session.

OK, the foremilk, the first part of your milk, is mostly WATER!! The hindmilk, which comes in after the baby has nursed for several minutes is thicker and darker, sometimes with a blue or green tint to it. The foremilk is for thirst, the hindmilk is for hunger. Try searching around kellymom.com. Or you can PM me with more question, there is also a lady on here who is a guru! She has a purple and pink avatar (last I know) hopefully she will answer as well. Relax, keep at it! SO WORTH IT!
