hi so ive been on CM a bit but just recently joined this grp bc im having more & more bf'ing questions & stuff. so little about me..
i have 2 ds's dh1 is 3 1/2 & ds2 is just 5 1/2 wks now. i bf;d dh 1 but he was a diffult one to bf & he didnt latch good & i didnt do it very well & so i ended up supp w/ formula earaly & then switching all together.. this time ive been doing much better & ds2 is soley bf'd i did buy a pump bc he is a daytime sleeper & is up ALL night & i need sleep badddd he also cluster feeds & i just needed to have some " daddy bottles" for night btu i do still pump in the night to maintain production.
i nurse & let him pacify ( he is a HUGE pacifier baby) in the day & i pump inbetween too.. so all day im pumping or nursing.. needless to say my boobs are sore! but my milk has come in more & more.
my new issues are now leaarning about proper balance of formilk/hindmilk. my baby seems very colicky & gassy, spits ups allot some dyas worse than others. he;ll seem happy then is hungry faste or somedays not at all & seems fussy & gassy =( i heard i might be pumping too much or making more formilk not hindmilk =making him gassy & not fullfilled.. so im trying to learn now how to better this.
any advice id love it!
im never sure when to switch sides, when its my hind milk or not i swear i cant tell the difference =/
