Pregnova - I could have written your post about the oversupply/letdown problems exactly. Except that it's giving my little guy a lot of gas, mucousy poops and making him nurse 1-2 hours around the clock. I'm also VERY prone to plugged ducts even he only misses one nursing session - so it's really hard....
He wakes himself up grunting and farting (at least it's not making him cry) and then he wants to nurse back to sleep. I wish I could let him just grunt himself back to sleep, but he also poops non-stop around the clock and so I always have to change his diaper which wakes him up just enough to want to nurse. He will go right back to sleep with nursing at night, so at least he's not up for hours or anything - but I would love a nice 3-4 hour stretch, it would make me feel a little more human for sure. I feel bad that he can't comfort nurse without drowning either, DS1 was never a comfort nurser, but this little guy clearly is - I can't hold him without him looking for the boob.
We've been enjoying smiles for a little while too - I love when he smiles at DS1, DH hasn't got one yet though. He's over 3 weeks now too, and has clear wake up times and he's so cute when he's listening to his big brother.
He hates the carseat though which is actually making me consider a soother just for car rides -anyone done this? I just can't bear listening to him cry so much and b/c there are 2 seats back there and the cold weather is starting it's not so easy to just pull over and pull him out to comfort him.
Silly - I think you should definitely take advantage of sleeping like that ! Waking every 2 hours at night over here too and it makes me really tired - a nap can at least help me function.
Vegan - hopefully she keeps getting stronger and can transfer a little more milk soon :)
Angel - I think I caused some bad sleep habits for DS1 too, and am trying not to this time, but am not being too successful yet - when I'm so tired in the middle of the night with a grunting baby next to me I definitely just go for the boob fix - I've got to try to wait a little longer I think.
Dannic - hopefully taking the chocolate out fix's the tummy problems - although boo! for no more chocolate!!
Hope everyone else is doing well - we're definitely missing a few people!!
