OAL

My 2 week old has done great BF from the get go. My question is he guzzles down when I get my Let down and just keeps going. But it seems like he is guzzeling air when he does it. Then he stops shortly afterwards. His poops are yellow and healthy. Should I be concerned? He seems to be gaining. He is giving great diaper out put.

I am still BF my 30 month old as well. Just want to make sure Im going about this right.

Try leaning back and putting him on top of the breast instead of under it to reduce the force of the flow into his mouth. The forceful flow increases the amount of air taken in which causes spitting up and gassiness that can make the baby miserable.

Exactly what Amy said. If he guzzles, that means you need to change positions.
