Dez has been having frothy green poops for the past seven days or so. He occasionally has the normal yellow poops, like maybe once a day. I cut out dairy for a long time but went back to it recently when I felt I wasn't seeing any improvement. (I'll admit it was really hard and I'm willing to try again if that is what it takes) I recently stopped eating eggs, too. I was having at least one hardboiled egg a day, eggnog on some days, and then one day had an additional three scrambled eggs and he had the WORST gas, the greenest poops, his 'acne' became ten times worse and spread across his neck and a bit on his chest. He also developed cradle cap, but I'm unsure if that is related? I've since completely stopped eating eggs and seen almost all of his 'acne' disappear, as well as the cradle cap. The green poop remains.
So I am aware that my letdown, while before he could handle it, seems to be stronger and stronger. Right now sometimes it is so strong he chokes on it. I've started taking him off the breast and letting my breasts leak into a cloth diaper before reattaching him. I try to feed him repeatedly from one side until that breast feels empty or "floppier" But right now I am constantly feeling engorged. I think it is because he just had a growth spurt and was feeding once an hour for three days, and now he only wants to feed every three hours or so. Today I hand-expressed some milk in the shower hoping he would be ready to eat when I got out but he was fast asleep and didn't want to feed until two hours later, again I was already engorged.
And the green poop remains! Am I doing this block feeding thing right? Do I need to pump or express RIGHT BEFORE offering him the breast? I'm already eating significantly less dairy since christmas (chocolate and cheese are all that remains in my diet right now), but could that be the culprit as well?
ETA: I forgot to ask, the websites I've read on block feeding say that it can cause supply to drop in a negative way, is this something to worry about, even with my (what I think may be) over supply?
