    How old is he now Fiona? I found with both my babies that the reflux started to peak around 6 weeks. The symptoms sound a bit refluxxy but if generally he is sleeping and feeding it's prob not bad enough to medicate. As Sonjasaid there are lots of things you can do to help. Keep upright while feeding. Keep upright for 30 mins after feeds. Elevate cot a d change table. Use infacol/gaviscon/mylanta put to sleep on left side if unsettled. Monitor until he is asleep then move him onto his back. the RISA website has some great info on reflux and silent reflux and things you can do to help xx

    Alittle - that's good news all round, for tomorrow.

    Fiona - it does sound pretty normal, could be just wind, babies do go thru these periods. I was told by a midwife in hosy that bf babies don't get wind but that was a load of bs as on my 3rd night with Evie she screamed for what seemed liked hrs then brought up a huge burp, I was beside myself as I had an upset tummy aswell, may have been why she was that way too, and she's always had wind either end. Try the infacol and see how he goes.

    Kismet- thanks for posting that link. I have nearly 7 week old twins both on that formula and Matilda screams with feeds. I thought it was struggling to poo which sometimes it is. Her poos are soft and look oily. I can hear her tummy rumbling as the food hits it. Henry has been constipated but both on iron as premmies so that is the cause of that. By mistake I bought pro nan tins last week so have started her on that last night and already improved with feeds. Still screams with trying to poo but not every feed thankfully. Pediatrician said normal until muscle tone improves but it breaks my heart watching them like that.

    Thanks Kismet. Ruby was on that one. Henry is on prescription formula (neocate) but they have brought in tough regulations and you have to see a gastro enteriologist (sp?) now to get a script and I was going to give H a go on the nan again before I did. I now won't! He seems to react if he has dairy in his food so maybe I will just go to a GE and talk to them. I would hate for him to go backwards. Specialists are such s pain in the a** though as you first have to see your GP (3 days wait at least), then book in to see a specialist (app wait list can be 6 months for GE). Does anyone know if there is a formula that the GP can prescribe?

    Good luck for this morning Alittle x

    BK - yikes, what a pain in the bum! Thanks so much for the heads up - I've just got another script last month for pepti junior gold which we have in the past got on script from GP... don't fancy paying GE bills

    Good luck Alittle.....

    AFM - trying to do solids with Tom - he's so so hungry and really keen but just has no idea?? He's intercepting the spoon 99% of the time so most of it goes anywhere but in his mouth, and the little bit I manage to get in he spits out again. It really seems pointless? We've been at it for nearly a month and it's getting worse rather than better - any tips?????????????? other than wait awhile, practice practice practice......

    Wannab - congratulations on the birth of your twins! I have seen you around on other threads but I've not kept up and had no idea you were expecting twins, that's awesome. I fed Evie Nan Pro Gold and had no issues, tried about 5 different formulas before staying on that one as she either got badly constipated or threw up, this one was no issue. It's apparently only the HA Gold 1 that is causing problems which is really scary, you like to think that any formula you feed a baby will be safe.

    M4N - E was similar when I started her at 5 months so I let it go for a couple weeks and tried again, I had to hold her hands down so she wouldn't make a grab for the spoon & when she was older she'd move her head side to side before I got the spoon anywhere near her so I had to hold face gently to get spoon in her mouth, I found that once she tasted it she stopped the fussing. She still does this sometimes particularly if I give her something she hasn't had before, total fuss pot! Can't think how old Tom is now? don't worry he will get it eventually.

    BK - that would be a pain in the butt waiting to get into see anyone especially in regards to feeding forumla. I got a letter yesterday about Evie's speech pathology appointment and can't get in for 9-10 months, how ridiculous is that, so will have to go to a private one I guess.

    Kismet - he's 6 months old... thanks for advice - just feel bad holding his hands down to shovel it in.... I let him go for it by himself mostly and hope he'll figure it out?? He already knows it tastes great and he TOTALLY wants it!! I have to give him 100ml milk to calm him down first!!!!!
    Re speech therapy - we waited for the public sys too about 6 months and it was totally worth the wait. Also, look at http://teachmetotalk.com/ It's fabulous. As for private, I'm sure you could go for an assessment ($200 approx) and a few sessions to get you started and that would probably be enough anyhow?? Mostly you do the training - I just talk really slowly and purposefully with LOTS of animation/excitement and make sure she's listening to you. She'll probably get it when she's ready
