    Sorry to butt in...I entered due date into the wonder week app. DD is 13 weeks but was born at 38 weeks so we are in the 12 week wonder week now. She has been unsettled during the day and has been waking up twice a night when during the previous couple weeks it was only once or not at all.

    I think you're supposed to add the due date not the birth date. I haven't read the book but had a look at their website after reading this thread.

    I second the reflux suggestion. My DS was the same. Stacks of wind. Impossible to burp. Waking to burp and screaming or little spit ups. Infants Friend worked the best of all available but nothing beats reflux meds.

    FWIW, DS was much, much better overnight compared with during the day. We could cot him during the night but he was sleeping upright during the day.

    My son was the same from about 6 weeks of age. Often he would wake up crying and was generally unsettled and cranky during day sleep time. Although at nighttime like your son he would sleep well. He was a very gassy/windy baby and it seemed I couldn't burp him enough!! I tried propping up his bassinet/cot, feeding upright, burping every 5 minutes, infacol, colic relief, stomach calm and gripe water! All which seemed to help only slightly. In the end I changed formulas (ended up on karicare de lact and now add a scoop of thickener to it) as well as go to the doctor who prescribed zantac as silent reflux was suspected. Boy did I see a change in his sleeps and mood within two days. He had symptoms of silent reflux and he was gaining weight a lot it seemed he was feeding more than he needed to sooth the burning. Since then I now have a very happy 5 month old baby! He still doesnt nap great- he catnaps but sleeps through the night and isnt cranky like he once was! If u suspect he has reflux then I suggest going to ur gp and talk about getting the meds. It made a world of difference to my son. Good luck! There is light at the end if the tunnel!

    Nettle, how did you sleep your baby upright during the day time?

    At the moment I'm testing out sleeping him in the pram during the day but seems like he won't stay asleep unless I'm there to push it over a coat hanger every couple of minutes.

    Has anyone bought one Of thOse wedge pillows for reflux babies and if so, did they work and are they worth it?

    Im glad you found a formula that worked better for your bub, bubbly bell! But mine is a breastfed babeh!

    Babies can sleep upright-ish in a car capsule, pram, bassinet on incline, in a carrier on you, or lying on your tummy whilst you sit on the couch and watch tv.

    Your bubba will have to get used to the pram - take him for s quick walk ie 5-10min till asleep then park it near you in the house. You can jiggle it from time to time. When you get to 35min of bub being asleep - go for a walk again to help bub change from oone sleep cycle to the other. After a week or so you will notice bub change cycles easier and you will not need to move the pram as much.

    Unfortunately, bolt upright was the only option for us. That meant he either had to be bundled in the sleepy wrap sling while I made some attempt at getting on with life or he lay upright against my chest while I got really familiar with day time television.

    Re the breast feeding thing - I was a bit like you in that I never really thought that there was another option. In the end his reflux was born of being intolerant to dairy and soy and everything barring two vegetables, rice and one fruit (pear). While the reflux meds helped he was still in pain for much longer than he needed to be because I was determined to persist. Just keep an open mind.

    Your kid may have straight reflux which means it will be over by about six months but it may be food related. Try cutting out dairy completely for two weeks - its the biggest culprit of underlying acid reflux issues in bubs.

    Oh I feel your pain, I'm going through the same. My bub is 6 weeks, I originally thought it was colic and Shes on colic formula I use gripe water religiously and she continually brings up burps but then the doc believes its reflux. She will scream and scream, fuss at feeds, hasn't gained much weight but still within average but it's like drinking the milk hurts her. I was giving meds on Friday, can't remember what they're called but no improvement yet. I think the next is changing formula...o actually called losec. The sleeping is out of control, why do they only sleep for 5 mins. Aghh!!!

    My paediatrician didn't think it was reflux because the baby is such a chubster, born 3kg and at ten weeks is 6.6kg. But from what I've read, it can hhappen that they stack on the weight by drinking ttoo much to try to soothe the burn. Poor bubba. Anyway I am pretty convinced from all the discussion here that it must be reflux, combined with trapped wind, that's bothering him, despite what the paediatrician said!

    Nettle, I'm going to have a look at those sleepy wrap slings you mentioned. Sounds like it is an option for me. AlOng with daytime tv viewings... Sigh
