Obviously weight gain is great. He hasn't been weighed in a few weeks, but I know he is gaining as he is growing out of clothes.
Urine - 9+ soaking wet diapers per 24 hours, plus usually get peed on while changing at least a couple of diapers a day :)
Poop - Since 1 month and up until yesterday maybe one full poopy diaper per day, or every other day, mustard yellow, seedy, smells like popcorn butter :) Yesterday had two very small poops that were "normal" but then one that was yellow but not as bright yellow, but smelled horrible and just didn't look right.
Nurses on demand, sometimes every 30 minutes other times every 2hrs, only at night will go 3-4 hrs sometimes without nursing.
Concern: For six weeks he was a mostly content baby... but this last week that has all changed. Lots of inconsolable crying, won't latch on and nurse at times, pops off breast screaming at times. Will not stay asleep for longer than 15 minutes. Hard, bloated tummy, spitting up more.
Overactive Letdown? My let down may be fast at first, but when he pops off I dont continue leaking/spraying milk. He doesn't have lots of slimey, green diapers. Also after about 10 minutes of nursing many times he is obviously frustrated and if I switch sides he eats happily for a few minutes and then is done.
Dairy Allergy? I don't know, but as of yesterday started dairy free.
Reflux? I don't know. I cut caffeine...
Virus? So last night my 9.5yr old started throwing up, with diarrhea, aches and chills, so now I wonder if baby could have a tummy bug and all this worry is for nothing. Baby has not had a fever or throwing up (some spit up).
Based on what I have said can you please help me rule out any of these or give me other symptoms I should look for to figure out his tummy issues? Thanks
