ok so i'm a first time mom and i'm breastfeeding (yay). i don't have a pediatrician appointment until friday (stupid labor day, the dr's office was closed until today so i couldn't make an appointment sooner) so i have no idea how much weight my son has gained or lost since birth. he was born on the 30th so he's about 6 days old right now. at the hospital he lost just a couple of ounces before we left. his billiruben was only 6 and the docs had no concerns.
i had an awful time with engorgement on day 3 but it went down after about a day. now my milk seems to have come in and DS is attached to my boobs almost constantly, only stopping to sleep for a couple of hours here and there or to poop.
the problem i am having is that he is spitting up what i think is a lot. i'm probably just having new mom jitters but i wanted to make sure i'm not doing anything wrong here. i am not sure if i should call the doc and ask to be seen earlier or just wait until friday. he is pooping quite a bit as well. the poop is yellow and loose like the bf info i have says it should be. his spitup is white and liquidy, not projectile at all, just kinda dribbles out. he spits up after almost every feeding, he's not upset when he spits up, just kinda stares into space or looks a little uncomfortable.
sometimes the spit up doesn't happen directly after feeding. sometimes he'll have popped off for a nap, i get him settled and lay him down and about 30 minutes later here's a little puddle near his mouth on the co-sleeper.
is he just drinking too much? i don't have a pump, didn't see a reason to buy one since i am a stay at home mom. should i be doing something that i am not doing? i am still getting the hang of burping. i am offering both breasts and he takes both.
