Gassiness/Fussy Newborn need help pleasep
The pumping is going really well and I put her on the non-injured side about once-twice daily but honestly, its so excruciatingly painful (and we have already run the gamut with latch, position, etc etc etc. It is what it is, it hurts like hell no matter what) but I still like to feel that closeness once in a while as long as I can stand the pain.
Anyway, I've cut out all dairy (I did that from day one because we have rampant dairy sensitivity in our family ) and cruciferous veggies about 90%... I don't eat chocolate and I do not drink any caffeine so I'm wondering why she's so gassey.. and it seems to only be in the middle of the night. She's sleeps and eats fine durinh the day but was up from 10pm-3am fussing and I was at my wits end by the time she finally fell out on Dh's chest.
So my question is: how long after one eats an offending food does it show up in milk? Because I'm pumping, I figure if I could time it, and dump those sessions, I could cut down on her gassiness... I did eat a big serving of cauliflower the other day without thinking and I have a feeling that's the culprit.. and if I wanted to have some yogurt or ice cream occasionally could I just dump the next two or three sessions and will it be out of my system then?
Supply is not a problem... I get about 6-7 ounces out both sides every 3-4 hours and she's eating 2-2.5 oz every 3 hours. I've already half filled my freezer with sticks and now I'm wondering if I should have marked what I ate on each bag prior to pumping :/
Is there anything else I could be eating that could be giving her such gas? This has been about 3 nights in a row now.
Thanks for your thoughts.
