    Oh Amy that doesn't sound nice. So I just feel like my over supply is causing issues, she just isn't settling and is grunting a lot in her sleep...and is very gassy, I'm just not sure what to do...maybe call ABA? It's such a puzzle this newborn stuff...I'm really tired, starting to feel overwhelmed.

    My step son is also back for our week on and I just don't have patience for him which is sad....

    Nic, are you pumping too?
    I have the same problem and did with ds. It does settle to their needs, but takes time. I've stopped pumping unless she only has one side and apart from a few painful 'full' feeling days, it's helped. She is drowned every let down.. Poor thing!
    Oh, try hand pumping when you feel the let down.. Just pull bubs off and squeeze a bit out.
    Hope it settles soon for you!
    Burp lots too, Ella is really gassy as well.. Must come with guzzling!
    Hope I have been some help!
    We are doing ok. Dh back at work and I'm just exhausted.. But doing fine otherwise! Can't believe she is nearly 6 weeks old!

    Thanks Adden...I have stopped pumping as of today and am only going to offer her one breast at a time and going to take your advice to pull her off when I feel the let down, or ill hand express a little before she gets on the boob as well as try and feed more laying down...see if all these things improve it

    Are there foods I shouldn't eat that could also make her fussy? I keep telling myself it's one day at a time, I find the nights the hardest as I get anxious that she will be a fuss pot. After this feed DH is going to keep her with him while I go for hopefully a 3 hour sleep...

    apparently onion, chocolate and coffee are common foods that can make babies windy/upset. But it's really trial and error as to what will affect you and bub.

    My council has a free lactation consultant that does home visits so a lady came out today and was very helpful...still I have questions that I forgot to ask but at least I feel better after speaking with her about a few things.

    First family outing tomorrow...DH and Orlando are going to Chadstone so I'm looking forward to getting out also having first visit from MCHN tomorrow afternoon which I'm looking forward to!

    I can't believe our little boy will be 12 days old tomorrow! He's been a bit fussy tonight and I thought he must have been constipated and he just did the biggest fart so I'm sure his nappy is nice and full now sorry tmi lol!! Fingers crossed he finishes a good feed and then goes off to sleep for a little while!

    I asked lactation consultant about foods today and she said that you can have anything in moderation if you scoff down heaps of a particular food then that may make bubs uncomfy

    Sounds like a lot of windy babies! Lactation consultant reckons if bubs is latching on properly then you don't need to burp a breastfed baby! Apparently they will burp if they need to! This is one piece of info I don't think I agree with as Imif we don't burp Orlando he will be awake much sooner with an even sorer tummy and will burp and do big #2s!!!

    I feel a letdown before I start feeding Ella, when I hear her or when she is due for a feed. I realise now though that my milk must also be flowing too fast as she chokes.

    I've also been told no need to burp breast feeding babies, apparently it's a very western thing to do that has been taught to us through generations. If you want to burp your baby, apparently if you sit them up and they burp that's all you need to do...
