Hi all, DD is 2.5 weeks old and has been a pretty chilled out little thing so far.
The last couple of days though, she's been quite unsettled and I'm wondering if there's a reason beyond general newborn-ness. This is what happens:
- very unsettled between 6 and 9pm. Throughout the day she is generally amazing and just feeds and sleeps and when she is wakeful, is usually just relaxed although today she has been unsettled for a lot of the morning too.
- she feeds well, but when she's had enough she pulls off the breast and if I offer it again she cries. Sometimes I think she just wants to suck but doesn't want milk to come out, but she won't take a dummy. She sometimes had a look of repulsion when milk flows and she doesn't want it. I do have a fast let down so she does often splutter on it.
- she is not a vomiter (has the odd little posset but I don't need a spew cloth around me) but sometimes when she's not feeding she will swallow - wonder if she's swallowing back vomit that might be coming back?
- she's quite windy. She farts a lot as well as burping.
She is gaining weight well and at night once she falls asleep about 9, she will do 3-4 hour stretches and feed and go straight back to sleep.
Just not sure if I should keep on as we are going or look into it further. It's mostly the random swallowing that has me wondering!
