I am a first time mom and have a 4 week old who I am breastfeeding. Anyone had any experience with a newborn who fuses at the breast while having a bowel movement or while trying to pass gas. My son is extremly gassy and does not burp easily. I have tried every different position for burping but usually I don't have any luck. Not every feed but if he is pooping he fuses and "Attacks" almost my nipple. He is not constipated as his stools are liquid yellow. Any suggestions as I am concerned that something may be wrong with my milk or with him and I am getting frustrated/stressing about nursing which I know won't help.
