Frustrated

I haven’t been writing much about breastfeeding because it seemed to be going ok. Spencer was gaining at a very slow, but steady, 3 ounces a week.  We are still supplementing and he wasn’t very fussy, is meeting his milestones and acted like a generally happy little kiddo.  At his weight check Monday, there was no gain from last week. Not even a tenth of an ounce.  He has been spitting up a ton in the last few days and had been nursing nonstop.  I actually thought he was having a growth spurt. Nope. No idea what was wrong. He is just stuck at 12 pounds.  The LC recommended no changes until we do another weight check next week.

I have noticed a change in his nursing patterns in the last few days.  He has been nursing for shorter periods of time and falling asleep more often, but over all the number of times he is nursing per day has increased so I didn’t think it was a big deal.  But I am starting to get stressed out which might affect my supply.  And then today it seemed like my supply was lower, I started having trouble getting him latched on and he fussed a lot more at the breast.  I am hoping it is teething, not a breastfeeding issue.  I think I will start increasing the number of times I am pumping per day tomorrow.
