Default Need support..

I think Evan has a tummy ache. He is pooping so much, his little butt is all red, and I can feel his stomach bubbling I'm thinking it's my milk. Does his system just have to get used to it? Or is this not normal? I'm worried and kinda scared to feed him. I hate seeing him so uncomfortable. I started using coconut oil today and it looked better for a bit, but as much as he is pooping it's just getting irritated again.

It's been too long that I don't remember much about tummy troubles. But I don't think he needs to get used to your milk, something you ate might be bothering him, but again it's been a while.

I know the ladies here are a wonderful resource, someone is able to help you find a solution quickly.

DD2 had tummy troubles when I ate gassy foods - especially legumes and broccoli, when she was a newbie. Also spicy things. And she *did* get used to those things in my milk in time. They don't bother her now, and she's not-quite 5 months. So not an eternity.

How old is he? How is he holding himself (fetal position, straight and stiff, arched back)? Is the poop foamy or weird colored or mucousy? How are you nursing (both sides/one side, how long on first side if you are switching sides)? Sometimes not getting enough hindmilk can cause gassy tummyaches.

Do you have a good barrier cream - I love coconut oil, but it's better for maintenance, and not as good for healing an already existing rash, IMO, because it soaks in too fast. I like burts bees diaper cream, but anything that will sit on the surface should work. The white stuff. You can apply that over the coconut oil - the two together work really well.

Breathe and feed him. Formula would be just as likely to give him a tummy ache. And then pay attention to what you ate in the 12 hours before he seems to have a tummy ache. If it's a food sensitivity, after a time or two you'll probably start to figure out what the likely suspects are.

Yeah, probably something you ate. I know that when I ate onions, DS would get terrible gas. It's been a long time for me too, so I don't remember what else caused tummy issues.

Andrea gave good tips for his poor lil bum. Frequent poops are normal as is the 'bubbling tummy' - babe doesn't have a lot of fat to dampen the sound or hide what is going on in his digestive tract so it's not uncommon to hear a lot of sound. Put your ear to DH's belly sometime and listen for a while. It's wild!

He's only a week old

The last time I offered to feed him he did the arched back stiff move and cried. That's when I first felt his tummy bubbling. He has scrunched up a few times too though. He usually eats for about 15-20min on each side. His poop looks like what is described as normal bf poop...mustard yellow, kinda runny, grain, not mucousy at all. I have some a&d diaper cream. Can I use that over the coconut oil?

The A&D would be perfect to go over the coconut oil. Not sure if it's cloth diaper safe, if you are using cloth.

How is your milk on the side you switch *off* of - the first side, when you switch. Does he nurse on that side until it's empty, or pretty much empty? That's the side that he will get the hind milk from. I have a ton of milk, and when I nursed my son on both sides, I was often switching him before he'd ever gotten any hind milk. As a result he was gassy, fussy, and never, ever full. With the other two, I learned to nurse until the milk on the first side was well and truly gone to make sure that they got plenty of hind milk.

It's definitely not gone. So should I put him back on the same one and let him finish then nurse from the other side next time?

It sounds like block feeding (one boob per session) may help for you, yes.

Yep, block feeding. I had to block feed #s 2,3, and 4.

My last two have seemed almost allergic to their own poo. DD is 16 months and she is still really red if poo sits on her for even half a minute. I like Grandma El' s. Barrier but breathable, cloth diaper safe, natural and not petroleum based.

I would go ahead and use coconut oil, then A &D, and either a disposable or some kind of liner to protect diapers.

My babies have always gone though a really gassy, rumbly, spitty period of time that I have always ascribed to them being very new and their digestive systems figuring out how everything is supposed to work! Things worked out after a couple of weeks.

In the beginning Ro pooped in the middle of every feeding. I often felt his tummy rumble before it.

I agree with feeding on one side. At 8 1/2 months Ro still only feeds from one side at a time. It's super rare for him to want/need both sides.

Also, if he poops and he doesn't get change him immediately he gets a red bum. Coconut oil has been our friend.

He seems a bit better today gas-wise and he isn't acting like his tummy is hurting. I'm doing the block feeding so hopefully that is helping. Thanks everyone for the advice. I was sitting here in tears last night, but I feel a lot better about feeding him now.

I know. I was just really overwhelmed cause he seemed to be pooping so much before I could successfully get his butt better and he was crying a lot.

Is this ok?

Start feeding on left side..eats for 15min
Takes a 10min break and then back on left side for another 15min emptying it
Another 10min break and starts rooting again so put on right side for about 10-15min
