My LO is 5 weeks old now and I'm wondering about a few of his behaviors. First, I've noticed that he grunts and strains a lot -- sometimes to the point where he seems really uncomfortable and even cries. My guess is it's gas, but does anyone have any advice for dealing with this and making him more comfortable?
On the same token, he sometimes will pull off an cry while breast feeding -- sometimes he gets really upset! I think it some extent it's due to a forceful let-down and/or oversupply. And advice on dealing with this? He pees and poops a ton and sometimes his poop looks stringy/mucousy. I also think he might cry while feeding due to gas.
Anyway, both these things are frustrating and upsetting for me -- I just don't know what to do for him! I see my doctor tomorrow (who is also Will's doctor) and can ask him. The last few days have been pretty stressful because of this.
An I alone on this or are there other grunty babies here? What have you all done about it?
