ok - i've done with the breast infection a couple weeks ago now, i've all but eliminated dairy from my diet ( although i backslid last night - dh made potato soup from scratch & i could not resist...)
and i still can't pinpoint what is up with ds' eating habits. he's very finicky about nursing from my right side still, and as a result my supply is down on that side. (i should probably be pumping to help that, i know
: ) but he also nurses almost constantly some days, while fussing, and i worry he's not getting enough from me, or that the quality isn't as good as it should be (?)
and yesterday he was just nonstop fussy even while nursing.(unusual if he's in his sling & fed - he is more of a high-needs baby so plain old fussing is normal)
i've been drinking mother's milk tea 3+ times a day & adding an infusion of fenugreek seeds in a tea ball to it to help increase my supply... is there anything else i should try?
the dairy thing is a suspicion we have because of his fussiness after eating - and a lot of spitting up (projectile at times). with the cutting out of dairy, it seems to have subsided and we're just left with standard spitups. could fish be bothering him? and i don't think i've been getting enough in the way of veggies... argh!
this is a new frustration to me - our other 2 babies nursed heartily with no problems
he's 10 wks old and still very skinny, although i know he's growing... help?
