    Default RE: BFd newborn and gulping sounds -- advice please!

    Thank you all!
    Baby is either outgrowing his gulpiness or the block feeding is working... or both!
    He had gained a pound from birthweight at his 2-wk visit, so no worries digestion-wise.
    Ped is not worried about stridor... phew.

    Glad he's outgrowing it!

    I was listening to DS3 last night and he does the same thing. It does sound just like a sea lion. He's got other issues, but it does seem to be a gulping and uncoordinated suck thing going on.

    Glad to see this thread! Arwyn doesn't sound like a sea lion, but she does gulp a lot. She makes swallowing AND smacking noises. And she's very gassy. My LC suggested pumping for a couple of minutes before a feeding if I'm very full. Since I'm down to pumping twice a day now, I do it before the first feeding of the day and after her long nap.

    I will also try the block nursing. One side really outproduces the other so it may be contributing to this issue.

    Another sea lion over here. She's a strong sucker and has no patience.
