Re: I need encouraging

I had the same problem with dd, the Lactaction Consutant asked if she seems to gulp when she first latches on..a lot of babies do, they're eager to eat. Well, this creates gas bubbles in their bellies, so she suggested that I take her off an burp her twice in the first ten minutes that I was nursing. It worked, and she nursed less frequently, she was now filling her belly with yummy mommy milk and not air.

Not sure if that helps, but that's what worked for me.
