My first 3 had dairy issues, so for my fourth, I just stopped eating dairy after she was born.  I had some over Easter - so Sunday - not a lot, but some... (she's 3 1/2 months old).  Sunday night, she slept pretty well...but she woke up a few times kind of coughing/gasping/making weird noises.  Some of these episodes woke her, some just were noises she made while she slept.  She was fine during the day Monday -- more spituppy than usual (she was VERY spit-uppy from birth, but it seemed to be much better and less frequent lately) ...but, we were visiting the il's so more adoring and holding for her (which she loves) than a usual day when she's fighting for just my attention divided among the 4 of them...


Last night(monday) was HORRIBLE!!  Up all the time, fussy, cranky...   She also is going on 2 days of no good naps... Could that be the dairy kicking in, or should I chalk it up to a sleep thing?  Any advice?


(I was thinking of adding bits in here and there, since I didnt think it affected her... but now I'm not sure?!? ...i hate the not knowing.... I'd adhere to whatever diet necessary if i could just FIGURE it out!! :)

And...  I'm lopsided -- one boob is huge, the other is tiny.  (I'm always a lil lopsided, but the difference is AMAZING 2-3 cups sizes different....)


Anyway...  the big boob is bleeding.  We've been going through some latch difficulties...  (it hurt when she latched on...she was just latching on the nipple)... i thought that was behind us, but now my big boob (which is also the side she likes better and uses more often eyesroll.gif) is bleeding.  Like, bloody milk all over her neck/shirt/lips bleeding...  (I've had bloody nipples before where there was just a lil bit of blood like dry skin cracking blood... but never gushing like this...   )  Could this be our problem???  And, I know blood is ok for her to ingest, but any ideas how to get it to stop?  (before, i just used lasinoh more often to prevent the cracking... but I don't think this is that...)
