Goodly Gracious.... Gas Sucks.

You've spent the better part of the last 24 hours wailing in pain because of gas. We just talked to the local laction goddess and she gave us a few pointers that we haven't already been trying.

Namely, when momma nurses you, she feeds a bit from one breast, then switches to the other, then back again, etc. The problem with doing this is that you're getting all fore milk and no hind milk. The hind milk is where the enzimes are that help you digest the sugars in the fore milk.

So, in the interest of equally draining momma's boobs, we've removed your ability to digest what you're eating. Yeah. Sorry 'bout that.

The solution: When you feed from momma, we stick you on one boob and keep you there until you empty it completely. Then, the next feeding, you go to the other boob and empty it completely. Lather, rinse, repeat.

...speaking of which, time to nurse....
