I have a fast flow and side lying works best for us (laying down in bed). Otherwise it's sips and then a bunch of burping and sips again.

I was thinking the same. You can lay your LO on you, or next you. Try the side laying position too.

Mine did the same thing for a while. He just outgrew it, but it took some time. I think during those first few months they have so much going on, if it's not one thing, it's another. Hang in there!

A little better with the change of position. We've been doing a sitting up position with me leaning back slightly. When she starts screaming I try to burp her and she usually falls asleep, so maybe she's tired?
Thanks for all the advice ladies!!

Is she fussy at all after the bottle? I haveOALD as well- and ds2 would nurse then scream. He'd go back for more and do the same. I found out he had food allergies and what I was consuming was putting him in pain; some days where worse than others. It did help to hold him upwards, and w/ds1 we'd side lay with a wedge pillow under his head so that he was elevated.

Re: Crying at the breast?

My 8 week old does the same thing. It sounds like a rapid let down that leads to swallowing air, giving her gas. I do block feeding with the first feeding of the block in the side laying position. This will help until your supply calms down.

Re: Crying at the breast?

Stop pumping. If you need to because you're going back to work, then do it. But during the first three months it's important to get little one to the breast as often as you possibly can so your breasts take cues from baby on how much to produce. The sore nipples go away, I promise!
