Hoping for some advice. DS is 5 days old and for the last couple of nights he's been really unsettled for the whole night - it usually starts after the late night feed (anywhere between 9:30-11:30pm) and he's unsettled until morning. I'm exhausted! Basically he feeds well but then has lots of wind, spews and doesn't want to be put down.
It seems to have started when my milk came in and the hospital midwives said it's probably because he's getting too much too quickly so recommended that I express about 20ml before each feed and only feed from one side each feed so the breast drains.
I had a terrible feeding experience with DD and I'm terrified of the same thing happening this time. Does this night time feeding issue settle down? Any advice for getting through it?? I'm hoping my supply settles down soon which hopefully will help.
He sleeps in a bassinet right next to me. No other issues, his weight is fine, latch is fine as far as I can tell.
