Recently my now 7 week old daughter has become very unsettled particularly at night, sometimes taking up to 3 hours to settle.
During the day she takes about 1/2 hour or longer to settle for a sleep and quite often it's only a cat nap and she wakes at the tiniest noises and then I have to resettle her again. (Patting, singing, shhhing, walking up and down the hall with her in my arms she screams if I out her in her bassinet).
My mum suggested trying formula (she has had formula in the past but we tried giving her more formula than breastmilk) and she seems so much happier. She's eating more, sleeping more and taking way less effort to settle. I even took her to the doctor prior to formula to see if she had colic or reflux it was that bad.
I have cut out cows milk, cherry tomatoes, chilli and chocolate. I drink decaf coffee. I can't think of any reason for her being unsettled but it's becoming apparent it's my milk
Today she mainly had EBM and has become unsettled and is only catnapping again.
Has anyone switched to formula and noticed a difference in their babies?
