my dd is starting to have nursing issues. last week she refused to nurse for two days. i ended up having to get her bottles of bm. now she eats for a few minutes then pullls off and squeaks at me, then relatches and so forth. i finally switch breasts and she eats for about 10 more minutes until she starts doing it again. i take her off and she gets really upset and starts screaming. i am noticing her diaper count is down too, she is on meds for her GERD and im taking 4 610mgs of fenugreek 3/day. im starting to feel like my production has gone down and am thinking that is why she is getting fussy and having lack of diapers. i tried getting her to eat every two hours instead of on demand (she has weight issues as well. it was either this or switch to bottles), but she either refuses me or does the whole pulling off and relatching thing. i have also never eaten dairy with her. i just dont know what else to do, between her two month and her gi appt 2 weeks later she lost a pound. she gumbs her fits all the time now as she is teething so its getting harder to tell when she is hungry. she also quit her 6 am feeding and is sleeping from 830ish to 8. i want to avoid formula at all costs because she is highly allergic to cows milk and soy.
any suggestions on what could be wrong? other ways to increase production?
