Ugh, this distracted phase is the worst! I started trying to stretch Hayes to more like 2 1/2-3 hours because I was really fighting with him to eat on our "normal" every 2 hour schedule. I wanted to make him super hungry. Now if he's super hungry earlier, that's fine by me, too. It also helps if he's semi-tired.
Hang in there, just like everything else, this too shall pass right :)
Will do! Thanks EVERYONE for all of your help these last (almost) 6 months!!!!
Green stools can be a normal for some kids so I don't want that to concern you too much. It can be an indicator of foremilk/hindmilk imbalance and stuff like that that you already know but it's not harmful in and of itself.
I'm glad that things have improved for you. Don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything else.
The spitting up is SO much better and he hasn't had any blood in his stools for quite some time, but he's still got mucousy, green stools. I've just come to the realization that he's destined to have green poop forever. LOL Maybe by the time he's eating *food* we'll get his bowels figured out. :)
Thanks, Teresa. He's sure chewing and drooling like he's teething, but I don't see anything in his mouth yet. No swollen gums...His sister was the same way. I'd never seen a baby drool so much in my life! Starting at 3 months I was convinced she was going to start teething but she didn't get her first tooth until she was
We may have talked about this already but are you trying breast compressions while you nurse to keep him interested?
I think that he
Just curious, how are the oversupply symptoms going? Still having spitting up, green stools, etc. or is that pretty much behind you?
First, it is quite common for babies to nurse for shorter periods once they reach this age. They nurse very efficiently, and can be finished much faster than before, then are ready to be off and explore the world again. Is this what is happening?
Second, is he teething? Teeth can be making the gums very sore long before the erupt, and this can make nursing uncomfortable. Using a remedy for the pain can help.
Is he still having enough wet diapers? If so, you can be sure he is getting enough milk, even if he does not feed for as long.
