wondering if someone could give some advice on my baby's situation. i had taken her to GP this week who ascertained there was nothing wrong with her as she's gaining weight - but i'm not 100% that's she's OK.
she is currently nearly a month old (3 weeks 5 days) and was born at 36w6d.
i mix feed her because my milk supply doesn't keep up with her demands & express and much as possible. so per feed she has 60ml of breast milk and a formula chaser of about 60ml (S26 Newborn) - i've got her on slow flow bottles as on the breast and generally with bottles she seems to suck too fast and ends up choking (so i have to sit her up and pat her back) on the breast when i could satisfy her, she was doing this 3-4 times.
at the moment she's not sleeping for very long - about an hour - then fusses for a feed. but while sleeping, she grunts, murmurs and writhes in pain, kicking her legs very strongly so doesn't sleep settled.
I've noticed since yesterday morning she hasn't passed any poop (really tiny amounts) but her nappies are still very wet. and heavy.
after her feeding yesterday, she is streching, arching and when i burp her she brings so much back up again and then unsettles, cries (gets very red in the face). i should also mention since birth it's been really hard to get her to burp using different methods.
i've had her on the breast early hours of this morning, she's just suckling for comfort - when i take her off she cries. i tried to feed her a bottle earlier but she only fed not even 20ml.
I tried to get back into the GP but they're booked out until tomorrow so I'm trying to handle this situation as best as I can - but I"m quite worried. could this be reflux? tia
