Re: 24 hours with our one month old

Interesting. I'd forgotten what life was like with such a little one.

You mentioned a lot of gas/burping & it sounds like you have a strong let-down. Have you considered nursing on your back to help with that? Made a world of difference for me (I had success reclined a Lot) and a few friends of mine (one literally laid down flat on her back to nurse all 3 of her kids).

Good tip! I do side lying a fair amount but haven't had a ton of luck actually on my back but it would be worthwhile to give it a better shot. The gas drops are helping, thought about gripe water too. I know gas is common in any baby, but my husbands side of the family is VERY gassy

When I pump, it comes out quite steadily especially on my right side. 5-6 streams spraying pretty hard lol
