This may seem obvious, but are you burping after every feeding? I never burped my other babies, but this new little one HAS to be burped or he is inconsolable.   Another thought, you could possibly have a milk "imbalance", where the baby is getting too much of the gas-producing and tummy upsetting foremilk and not enough of the rich, hindmilk. The solution is to pump an ounce or two out before baby nurses, and also to nurse on the same breast for several feedings, so...

Hooray Oceanseve!!!! Can't wait to hear more!

Hi mamas! Our baby is one week old today. I feel *incredibly* blessed. This has been my roughest pregnancy physically and emotionally, but the smoothest birth-wise, postpartum and baby-wise. I am still in awe of how amazing the birth was and how well baby and I are doing! Postpartums for me are usually pretty rough, between how craptastic I feel and the whole milk-allergy horribleness.   The afterpains were gone by day 3. I took ibuprofen the first 2 days, but it...
Awesome! What a great birth and a beautiful baby!   Welcome Levi Everett!
How scary! I am really happy to hear that things are getting better though. Sending you LOTS of healing and calming vibes.
He is beautiful!!! So happy for you that you had a nice, quick birth too!   Welcome little one!
