I have bottlefed (formula) my baby since she was 3 weeks old. She is now 9 weeks.
I have been using the avent bottles and teats and all has been fine til recently when we have been having problems with feeding her.
She has starting jerking around on the bottle now and starts to scream and cry hysterically just after its put in her mouth. She then will calm down with our help and wants to then take the bottle again like she is ravished but starts to carry on again.
We have slowly illiminated such things as making sure the formula is at the right tempurature and changing the teat flow etc as well as sitting her upright etc etc.
I have a dr appt this afternoon to discuss the possibility of maybe this silent reflux that a few people on here have talked about.
I called the child health line yesterday when i was stressed out of my brain and she suggested changing the bottle all together and the teat. I had some novelty character bottles (no brand) which I made up yesterday and so far she has been somewhat calmer with this. i have also taken to not holding her whilst feeding her either but just propping her up on a pillow on the lounge. This seem to work for two feeds yesterday. I also fed her on her fav place (the changetable) yesterday which she seemed quite content with that too. She seems to not want to be held when the bottle arrives or something I think.
Any ideas on what this could be or other things I can do or try ?????????
I have also illiminated wind probs too as she poos twice a day and burps and farts a substantial amount !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
