    Thanks, ladies! The rash felt less itchy today, but it could be that I was just so focussed on Hunter that I didn't have time to itch. Things are improving since I switched to one breast per feeding. He didn't really have a colic episode last night. The milk is still ejecting rapidly, but he seems to be getting used to it and if ge's really struggling, I pull him off and hand express into a towel until the spray is less intense. I'm also burping him more often and using the gas drops after each feed. Hopefully, things continue to improve and I can figure out when to switch back to normal feedings, as to not cause an undersupply problem.

    I have heard that some people produce so much milk that they only need to feed on one breast per feeding, and it is better that way because the longer the baby spends on one breast, the more fat-concentrated hindmilk he gets. I'm glad Hunter seems to be doing better with the changes.

    My sister and I have each fed our newborns on only one side at a time, and her midwife encouraged her to that as the fatty milk is so important for them. Your doing a good job hun and I hope your feeling well today.

    Thanks, ladies! He's doing better today. My flow is still strong, but it's not over powering him. He was much less gassy today and nit fussy at all. He was even able to comfort nurse on my "empty" breast tonight, which he hasn't been able to do (which I now beleive was the main cause of his colic episodes in the evening - he'd be uncomfortable from gas, want to comfort nurse and get drowned in milk, fight the breast, leaving mom to have to find an alternativr way to sooth him (walking around house singing to him would often work, but took a while). I didn't know how much I missed comfort nursing him until I was able to tonight. He went right out and we both slept instead of doing laps.
