For the past 2 weeks both my now 6 week old girls have had reflux and have been extremely hard to settle at night, especially the last 3 days.
We've tried heaps of things to ease them but they just won't settle. I've been breast feeding but I've had alot of trouble feeding at night, especially when I tandem feed. They cry and it's hard to reattach them and the whole thing then takes just over half an hour.
My GP suggested I put them on formula as they are gaining weight but apparently not as much as they should be.
I flat out refused as breast feeding is something I really have my heart set on and so I've just been persevering but it's getting harder to do.
So tonight I fed them S-26... They slept for 3 & 1/2 hours, woke had some more and went straight back to sleep no fuss.
I know it's stupid but I had a traumatic birth that didn't go to plan at all and if I give up breast feeding I know I'll feel like a failure. This is my own doing though, nobody is putting pressure on me apart from myself.
What do you guys think I should do?
