It's 11:00 AM. I'm still sitting in the bed. I have had someone or something attached to my boobs since 9:00. Bird has some gas issues. Possibly reflux. Might explain the thrashing and crying during feeding. The doctor said I just had to be patient and keep holding him to the breast. Let him work out the gas.

It's a new doctor. He's miles better already. Although, it's not like the old doctor made that a challenge of some kind.

My boobs are crying "uncle," and Bird has finally drifted off after an ounce from a bottle.

It's going to come down to time I bet. I just won't have all morning long forever. New doctor says though, that very soon, he should be outgrowing some of that gas and I should notice nursing getting significantly easier.

I like him. He offers hope along with his analysis. I hope he's right.

Baby would seem just fine one day, then BAM! Linda Blair comes to mind.

What that was supposed to say is that when they *do* go through these growth spurts (and mine usually hit them right around those times), they can seem a bit 'off', and you just can't figure out what might be going on...

Then, all of a sudden, a few days later, you look down at your little bambino and realize that he just grew inches before your eyes!!!

I didn't believe it until I saw it myself :)

Hope all is well... Thinking of y'all :)

Hugs to you both. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Paige Jennifer DATE:Friday, March 14, 2008 at 12:12:00 PM EDT I don't want to disappoint you but I'm 35 and I still haven't outgrown gas. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Gerbil DATE:Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 7:20:00 AM EDT Poor bird. Jacob had gas and reflux, and we kept having to stop feeding and burp. Jacob just plain did better with a bottle of EBM that he did with nursing. Glad you were able to find a new doctor that you like better. The old one still deserves a good wedgie. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Becki DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 8:34:00 AM EDT I hope he's right too!! Glad you've found a better doctor :) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Ally DATE:Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 10:50:00 PM EDT Poor you, and poor Bird. Nursing troubles are the pits. I'm glad you have a new doc who is offering good ideas and some hope. ----- --------
