So my bubba of 2.5 weeks has been put on lactose free formula as per her paediatrician due to colic/reflux issues.
Truthfully I haven't noticed much of a difference and she seems to be a bit constipated passing these pellet poohs the size of rabbit pooh (sorry tmi)
Although the last two days I have noticed she has been increasingly been distressed about 1 - 1.5 hours after the feed and is thrashing her head around and sucking on her fingers and seems to still be very hungry.
The mcn told me to use comfort techniques until at least 3 hours as tired babies tend to want to comfort suck but that at least an hour and a half of a crying baby and the middle of the night we are just exhausted. Plus all the crying effects her colic.
Has anyone used this formula? Is it possible it us not filling her up? Should I just give her another feed when she wants it or do I hold her out?
Any other suggestions I haven't thought of???
