I have a sneaking suspicion that I might have some issues with oversupply and/or a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance....or both?
At about 7 weeks DD2's nappies changed from the yellowy mustardy curdy poos to a green or green/yellow poo with no curds, just liquidy looking but thicker than water.
I even noticed a little bit of fresh blood in a couple.....very tiny amounts though.
She wasnt showing any signs of pain or discomfort and she wasn't gassy. She is a bit of a chucker though.
I read up about it online and spoke to a Dr and he suggested that DD2 was reacting to cows milk protein.
I cut out the dairy but not much changed, even after 3-4 weeks.
I have a very forceful, uncomfortable let down. It's a prickly sensation for me, I feel it for about 3 seconds then DD2 starts chocking and coughing on it, but persists with feeding so i let her keep going and she manages to get through the gushing til it stops.
She would feed between 6-8 minutes and come off. I'd change her nappy and then give her the next side which she was taking for another 5-6 minutes but suddenly she started refusing the second side. My b00bs went even more crazy and started filling up more as DD2 was only using one side at a time.
I read about the milk imbalance and it sounds like that's what's going on.
I started block feeding. One side at a time, change nappy then offer same side again.
She is now feeding for 30-40 minutes all up each time and the nappies have cleared up somewhat but I am still getting green ones here and there.
Is it ok to get a green one or two each day or should they always be that yellowy colour?
Should I start dairy again?
Has anyone else been through this?
I'm do confused
