Breastfeeding Fussy Baby
Burping my baby made him fuss and try to latch again. I pulled him off again because I feed him for 10 minutes every 10 minutes. This is a good solution, but baby gets fussy and tries to relatch when I unlatch him and will fuss and cry.

super fussy baby/slimy soupy poop
My little one has had slimy soupy poop for over two weeks now.
When it first started it was right after he got an oral vaccine at the Dr.’s so I thought that might be the cause. Then no poops for a few days, but a super fussy baby, TONS of gas.
Then another one but we had started probiotics for colic and I thought maybe that was it.
Nothing for a few more days. Then back to the Dr. for a shot, and lots of Tylenol, more mess, I guessed the Tylenol. Then nothing and now again today, it’s back.
He also has gas like crazy. Poor baby cries and cries like when he has colic, but off and on all day now. His tummy gets so tight and he pulls his legs up and cries. I’m thinking maybe there is a different cause here.
A friend mentioned foremilk/hindmilk imbalance? I used to feed on one side and then switch the next feeding. Lately, the past 2-3 weeks, he will only nurse on the one side till the milk flow slows down then he pulls off, or pushes away, shakes his head back and forth with his mouth open, arches his back and starts to cry.
I KNOW he’s still hungry, but no matter how many times I try to get him to nurse again he won’t. UNTILL I offer him the other breast. Then he will eat for another 5 minutes or so till it slows down there, and the who thing starts again if he’s not full.
After my friend suggested this I tried really hard to calm him down and get him to continue nursing on the same side. Well after 5 minutes of hysterical crying, talking a suck or two and pulling away again, he burped up milk and started choking. L I fed him on the other side because I don’t know what to do. I need help please. This is miserable for both of us.
Fussy Baby, Slow Milk Flow
by Malena - Mrs Mumy Yum
The problem is that my baby only sucks the breast in the beginning when milk flow is quite fast but when the milk is going slower and slower she refuses even she is hungry. I know that because she looses weight or puts only 50g per week when she is 6 months old.
Sleepy/fussy and drinking more
Hi, My daughter is 10 weeks old and just recently she has been sleeping more, where as before she would be alert and awake and watching everything. she also is feeding a lot more and a bit more fussy about it. I'm concerned for her and also a paranoid new mom! lol! help...
Hi I breast feed my baby lying down and he usually falls asleep once done. I haven't been waking him to burp. Is that a problem? he isn't fussy but he does spit up a lot during wake hours. Since I don't want him to wake up do you have any suggestions for burping ?
issues with milk ejection reflex
by mrs miriam horowitz
My problem is issues with MER. I always feel my reflex very strongly, even now, with my baby already 5 mos old. But sometimes, it just doesn't come. My baby gets very frustrated when that happens and will either cry himself to sleep or get extremely upset and give up.
These episodes occur out of the blue, with no relation to stress, changes, alcohol, smoking, tiredness, etc. It can occur even when my breasts are full when waking up! Baby will finish the available milk but no subsequent MER will occur and he will cry, hungry for more!
Oxytocin nasal spray brings immediate relief, but still...
be on my breast all the time (fast flow)
I breastfeed my baby girl. Shes gonna be 2months on the 4th, my baby seems to wanna eat then latch off and I burp her and I keep offering her my breast to make sure shes done. If im driving down the street shes changed and burped, but seems to be hungy.
I know I have milk because when I hand express I get 2oz and she has a problem im guessing with my flow because theres times when she crys and she has milk running down her face, an shes frustrated crying her head off.
Another thing, she falls asleep, rubbing her toes, chin, and behind her ears.
Any answers for me?!?
