I've nursed all of my kids. I've never had an issue with supply. This time I'm not so sure? Feeding has been going really well until a few days ago. He will be 4 weeks old Tuesday. He's started spitting up more and I really can't think of any big diet change that I've had. I'm not taking any new meds or vitamins or anything.
During the day, it's safe to say that he still feeds every 2 hours at the most. At night he might wake every two hours but sometimes he dream feeds a little and goes back to sleep so by morning I usually feel more full.
In the early evening hours.. Like maybe 6-9pm he seems to still cluster feed. He almost seems frustrated at the breast and I'm not sure if maybe it's gas or if he's not getting enough. He gets super fidgety and fusses while feeding. If he detached from me.. He's immediately and frantically searching for my nipple.
He gained just fine at his first drs visit. He follows up this week. He seems like he's chubbing up. But I would say there's a noticeable difference in the fullness I've felt with my previous two kids compared to now. So I've googled and I'm already keeping a beverage close and switching sides during a feed. He usually feeds about 10 min per side.
I'm concerned about supply. Should I just see how his weight gain is at his next visit? If he's gaining than he's obviously getting enough right?
