Re: Dairy problem, or just how they are?

I am kind of glad to see this posted so I know it's not just me. Lilly is now 1 week 4 days old and going through the same thing. I am already lactose intolerant so my dairy intake is VERY limited already. I spoke with the doc and the lactation nurse and both said that when the baby is about 10 days old or so they hit their first growth spurt and get cranky and want to nurse nearly non stop. Apparently this must be what I am going through and I'm thinking it's probably what you are going through as well. Lilly just wants the boob all the darn time and I am starting to feel like a cow plus my nipples are so sore. I do switch and sometimes (not all the time) she prefers one side to the other but not always the same side. Very strange!! I hope everything is working out for you and I am glad that I am not alone withthe NB nursing issues.
