    Having same issues with my newborn. She was also early, I do believe it is just an immature digestive system and my oversupply. Feeding lying down seems to help, as well as holding her up on my shoulder for 15min after feeding (only feed from 1 side per feed).
    I had great success with a chiro with my firstborn so will be trying again with this one.

    I'd head to a paed and an osteopath and see what they have to say/can do. I hope you get it sorted soon xx

    Hun, it sounds very much like silent reflux... My DD2 is now 7.5 months old, but around 3 weeks, I started noticing all of the following symptoms - it was terrible. Also, how big was bub born (my DD2 was small, and her digestive tract would not have been quite mature yet)...

    Her symptoms were:

    Having to suck 24/7 be it the b00b, dummy or her fist;
    Gurgling, gulping, hiccuping, grunting, squirming (we would hear it come up, she'd swallow, then we'd hear it go back now and then she'd scream);
    Severe wind;
    Needing to be upright (which helped a little);
    Needing to change position every 10 minutes or so;
    When lied down she would grimace in pain;
    Feeding every 1.5 hours;
    Not burping despite our every effort;
    About 30 minutes after a feed literally losing the plot and screaming;
    Arching her back, pulling her legs up;
    Never spitting up any milk;
    Catnapping; and
    Generally unsettled.

    At her 6 week check with the paed, she was put on Losec (just one dose a day) and she was on that for 4 months, and it really made a difference! It was our life saver, and if we forget to give it to her, we would pay for it the next day! Also, we took her to the chiropractor and I think that helped her too... I don't think anything specific we did was the 'fixer', I think the combination of it all (doing everything you/I listed above, the medication and the chiro, as well as her just getting bigger and her digestive tract maturing. My GP also suggested Infant Gaviscon, which I have heard good things about. In the meantime, try a dummy, as the sucking motion relieves the pain and comforts them, also when feeding her, try and feed her in an upright position, you might need to play around a bit and see what is comfortable for you and her and holding her in an upright position for at least 20 minutes after each feed, and lastly if you haven't already, invest in a good baby carrier (eg. Ergo) and wear her all day if you have to!

    And finally... See if you can get to your GP ASAP to get a referral to your paed to get her checked out, even if it is just for your piece of mind.

    Hugs and good luck... let us know how you go...

    If you have any questions please PM me. It's heartbreaking seeing them in so much pain and knowing there is nothing you can do for them - most days I was in tears too! Have you tried a few different dummies? Stay strong mummy!

    I know what you mean. DS2 was a 31 weeker and he was refluxy and very sad. The dummy really helped, and we had to persist for yonks before he'd take it.

    ETA have you tried cutting dairy out of your diet?

    Yep, I was just thinking that too, you may need to cut dairy, caffeine a d sugar and any citrusy/acidic foods out of your diet - she may even have a milk intolerance.

    Also, during my third trimester I had severe reflux, throwing up every day, I was on prescription Zantac and thankfully I was able to throw up and felt better afterwards, but to help ease the discomfort and the burning I would drink peppermint tea - it wad amazing. Now I know silent reflux in an infant and reflux in an adult is very different, but I tell you what, I was so desperate to help my little girl stop being in pain, that I started drinking the peppermint tea again and I kid you not, the days I drank it whilst breastfeeding her, she was calmer on those days! So, maybe start drinking peppermint tea... Just a thought!
