Default what to do?


 
for the last two nights, lola has been very fussy from 3am to 630am. she nurses at 11pm, 1am, and 3am. after the 3am feed, she wants to nurse every hour after. then she fusses. we can hear her pass gass and her belly gets rigid. i am thinking of giving her mylicon drops to see if that helps.


i really have no idea if it is something i am eating. i was wondering if the wanting to nurse every hour during that time frame meant that she wasnt getting enough milk?

how old is she? it may be the three week growth spurt.

my son (my youngest) also had gas a lot and i think it was from swallowing air during nursing. he doesn't pass gas so often these days (now three months) and my diet hasn't changed, so i am sure he is better at nursing (being bigger helps!
 
) the nursing every hour thing should ease up within a day.

yes It could be a growth spurt. the best thing to do is let her eat when she wants to so that she increases your supply to the amount she needs. the gas is normal and the mylicon drops may help with it. My son has always been gassy also and I think it's worse in the night because he lays down to nurse and the latch is not as good and he swallows some air. I sometimes bicycle his legs and push them up towards his tummy and it helps get the gas out.

well, the constant nursing could be the growth spurt - or it could be that the nursing feels good on the upset tummy (it did for my DS) or it could be a combination.

If she's passing gas, and fussy like that - then I'm guessing that she really is having a hard time with something you're eating.

So - what are you eating?

lol karen...i have no idea!

nothing too far fetched.
usually it is sandwiches for lunch and some kind of pasta dish for dinner.
Dh made some tuna salad the other day and i ate that. i wonder if i should keep some kind of food diary?
