My 3 week old babe is having some serious tummy discomfort. It seems that gas and her stools are causing it. Her stools are completely normal for BF, but I can hear her tummy grumbling like when you're sick and have diarrhea. She burps well at each feeding (several times) and even burps on her own throughout the day. I keep her upright for 10-15 minutes after her feeding to make sure any gas that's left has a good chance to come up. Still, she fusses and screams and I can easily tell that it's her tummy bothering her. A week ago I stopped eating dairy and at the same time I started block feeding to help reduce my huge supply. I'm still going for 3 hours on each side and I'm still leaking quite a bit on the side that's not being nursed. Without a pad in my bra I have a wet spot larger than my hand and sometimes it goes all the way down to my hip!
So, after a week I'm not seeing any improvement at all in the way she's feeling. I am feeling like the issue is my supply at this point because I should see some kind of improvement if it were the milk, right? And I still have a serious oversupply. So, I'm feeling like it's the oversupply and not dairy. I'm unsure if I should continue on eliminating dairy (which I'm craving like mad despite supplementing with calcium), if I should try an elimination diet to pinpoint something else that might be causing it, or if I should go back on dairy and wait out the oversupply.
What would you do?
