Hi ds2 is nearly 7 days old. Breastfeeding seems to be going well, feeding every 2-2.5 hours and seems satisfied after a feed. But since the meconium finished his stools have been quite liquidy and pea green in colour. He seems perfectly well otherwise.
But I remember ds1 having yellowy colour stools when he was breastfeeding, so wondering if there is something wrong?
I've had a look on line and one cause seems to be a lack of hindmilk? I'm feeding him on one side only usually. Have been quite sore and engorged so had been alternating a bit more for my comfort, but certainly since yesterday he's been having one side for each feed. But my breast is still very full even after he's finished. Should I be using the same side for the next feed even if it's a couple of hours later?
Has anyone experienced the same problem?
