How old is baby?
Tel me about his weight gain? (a weight history would really help!)
Have you ruled out oversupply as a cause or contributing factor?
When a mother has more milk than her baby can handle, the following behaviors may be common:
If many of these experiences seem familiar to you, it may be because you have an overabundant supply of milk, which can cause a forceful milk ejection (sometimes referred to as overactive let-down), and/or foremilk-hindmilk imbalance. The infant behaviors described above are caused by these issues but may frequently be misdiagnosed as colic, lactose intolerance, milk protein allergy, reflux, or hypertonicity (stiff muscle tone).
