Any of the mamas want to share how it is going and swap tips or encouragement?
After nursing DS for 3yrs I thought it would be easy this time around (I experienced almost every major problem with him)
Although it is many ways, this babes latch got rough with engorgement - ouch!
Luckily I hired a LC ahead of time and she's already been here a couple of times and is available whenever I need her - it takes a load of worry off for sure.
I'm on the oversupply side of things, which I know sounds not too bad, but I got weekly mastitis infections w/ DS if he even so much as went an hour late for a session - so I really have to manage it.
Anyone elses babe like to cluster feed for an hour or more before their big poops? He does lot's of little poops that don't bother him, but about twice a day (10am & 10 pm coincidentally) he nurses/ stops/nurses/stops forever until he lets the big one go - he's not fussy/crying so I don't think I need to actually change anything...but he definitely needs time when he's working on it!
Also, anyone elses babe hard to burp? He's not swallowing a lot of air, but it's really hard to burp him.....
I'm just going to assume that we're all typing one handed from now on, so no worries about typos :)
