Do you worry when they're fussy?

DS has been super fussy the last few days, nearly a week. At first I know it was my supply...but now I feel like I have improved that. My question is,

Do you worry that when they're fussy it's something with the bm?

I can't get over it! Whenever he's fussing I am constantly worried that there's something wrong with my bm- either not enough of it, tastes bad, gives him gas, etc etc etc....I can't help it! How can I get over this? It's an awful feeling.

DD was on formula by this time for many many reasons...at least I knew if she was fussy it wasn't her food because her food never changed, kwim?

Your milk is especially made for ds--no worries mama. Just keep feeding him--whenever he wants, as much as he wants. He would be more fussy if he was on robot food (formula).

If he's older I wouldn't worry it's your bm, as they get older I find they get a bit fussier cuz they're more aware. I think if it was your bm you'd see it right away - like my lil guy HATES garlic but it took me one ceaer sald to figure that out. When it's a food reaction I've found my babies (my dd was milk, I couldn't have ANY dairy) will cry different than just a fussy cry, it's like in consolable and they're tummies get reall hard.

GOOD LUCK MAMA, keep b****** it's good for you both

He's 10 weeks old. Yeah, I don' t think it's a food sensitivity...he doesn't act like his tummy hurts. I just worry that he's not getting enough...even though he has plenty of wet diapers and no signs of dehydration. I know....I just worry!

Re: Do you worry when they're fussy?

I'm on baby # 4 and it has been my experience that no matter how a baby is fed they are fussy at times until hey are 4-5 months old. My ped says it takes that long for their digestive systems to mature enough so food doesn't bother them. I have nursed the last 3 for only about 3 mo. With #4 I am on week # 16 and all is going well. Try hard not to worry and offer the breast often.

Re: Do you worry when they're fussy?

If DS had been my first, I probably would have worried sometimes when he got fussy (I'm a worrier too). But DD came first and cried a LOT. Practically from birth she was either screaming or smiling/laughing. Still is. If I had worried with her, I'd have a stomach full of ulcers. For better or worse, I have became a lot loss worrisome.

Re: Do you worry when they're fussy?

It is easy to get caught up in the ounces obbesion especially if you ff before. If you are getting pees and poops, gaining and all that fun stuff then no worries. I nurse on demand. The more they nurse the more you make and be sure youare drinking water water water, all day water. DO you drink caffine, if so cut that out for a few weeks and see if that helps. My ds's are whinners but ds1 is spd hypo and ds2 ( same age) has a dairy intolerence. BF means everything to me so cutting out dairy SUCKS but it is worth it to me!
