I have a 1 month old premature newborn. 7 wks early. I was pumping and giving him breast milk w/bottle plus supp. with similac neosure. My milk supply has dropped, plus his appatite has grown. I am not able to give him as much breast milk as I was. Mostly he is getting formula now. He is gassy, fusses a lot. Several times a day he turns bright red, strains and SCREAMS, cries for a long time. He hasn't pooped since yesterday morning. My mom is giving me a hard time because she thinks he is constipated and expects me to somehow "fix it". I have no idea how.
And for those who strongly believe everyone should breast feed only... I have talked to a consultant on the phone. My supply is down because I'm under an extrememe ammount of stress and health problems. I'm doing all I can, sometimes it's just not possible. Please don't bring it up.
