My son will be 8 weeks on Wednesday and for what seems like a week he keeps having these extremely fussy times when it comes to feeding. He's been passing gas a lot today and some yesterday, but he doesn't seem to be bloated or anything. He didn't poo at all today (well very small amounts a couple of times), I feel like he's to young to be worrying about teeth, and he seems completely fine until it comes time to lay him on his side to feed him. It happens at least one in the morning and once in the evening. I don't know what to do! I try massage for his belly and cycling (just in case it's gas), I've tried to swaddle him to make him more comfortable, I've tried to steadily tap his back while he eats to try to distract him, I've tried talking to him, and I've tried pumping in case it was a to fast/slow milk let down. Is this something I should talk to a lactation person about or a doctor? I'm getting to a point that I'm afraid to feed him because I don't know if he's going to completely freak out or not. I'm almost on the verge of tears when my son has a melt down and I just don't know what to do!
