Quoting ::1st:: Time Mommy:" we had to mix feeding because its the only way he will gain weight. he gets 2 oz. of formula, unless ... [snip!] ... all the onesies. I've never see na baby sweat like this. hes in less clothes then me and i am cold but he feels soo warm."
Babies often cry after spitting up. If it's an hour after he nursed, he isn't starving though because much of it would be digested by then already. It sounds to me like he has other issues going on. Never mind though - read your other questions & realize you've been on supplements since nearly the beginning, so it sounds like you're pretty set on it & don't intend to look into getting him onto only breastmilk. If you are going to nurse at all, I'd try pumping first before latching him & continue until after letdown & THEN offer the breast. You will be giving him hindmilk at that point & it is thicker & fattier. He'll keep it downbetter & gain more weight from that. It is much denser in calories than any formula on the market. They also have a human milk fortifier which is a powder you could add to the foremilk you pumped & top him off with that instead of formula & it would thicken it & increase calories & fat too. If your Dr was
helpful & supported breastfeeding at all
, they'd have told you that already. Most say they support breastfeeding, but then they seldom actually DO anything that supports it.
You are right, seating doesn't seem typical for a newborn at all when just setting still. My kids always
sweated like crazy though during
nursing - as in their hair would get soaked & clothing damp. That isn't unusual. They also always ran warmer than me, but I tend to run a little chilly.
