My daughter is almost 3 weeks old and I'm having a little bit of a problem when I nurse her. She makes this sort of squeaking sound when she swallows and it sounds like she's swallowing a lot of air while she's nursing. Sometimes it is worse than others, but I have tried other positions and nothing seems to help make it better. After she nurses, I burp her, but it seems like there's still a lot of gas in there and it appears that it makes her uncomfortable. Even after I burp her, every once in a while she will spit up a great deal, then cry as if she is very uncomfortable.
I nursed my son for 18 months and he was a champion nurser--I never had any trouble with him at all. I was spoiled!
The baby is gaining weight just fine and her latch seems good. She's interested in nursing and I'm making plenty of milk.....just this air swallowing problem....
