Hey Lady's, first, thank you so much for looking at my question. I have a 6 week old, who from birth has been pretty cranky, but recently it's become more then that. He's now not nursing well, more like, not efficiently. He will act starving, start nursing, he takes the let down, but then becomes very aggravated, and upset, he starts to pull on and off, on and off, constantly. Also, his suck seems pretty poor, and he doesn't suck hard enough to get all the milk out of my breast. I do not use bottles, and refuse to try formula. Thankfully my milk seems to be doing "okay" for now, but he isn't getting much hind milk so i'm starting to worry that my milk is going to drop low. He is gaining weight, and is 10 pounds at 6 weeks. He's fussy pretty much whenever he's awake. He spits up, a lot, and after every feeding. Sometimes he is still spitting up an hour after he eats, and at that point it's normally curdled milk. He doesn't seem to be bothered by the spitting up though, and i'm pretty certain it's not acid reflux. I'm getting sad that he doesn't willingly take the breast. Also, I should say, that since birth he has never seemed satisfied after a feeding, it's like he didn't get what he needed ect. Any idea's? I'm lost, and i've done so much research online about it with no luck. My midwife has be on a Wheat and dairy free diet, but it's not help, as of yet.
Thanks ladies, I certainly appreciate any advice
