Hi Sorry I posted this in the bottle feeding section but thought I would post here as well for help. I am just after some suggestions on what I can do next.. Hoping someone can help!! I have a Dr's appointment on Thursday to discuss (our nurse is on holidays & her "replacement" just googles things in front of me so I may as well do it myself!)..
My bub is 7wks on Thursday & fully formula fed on Bellamy's organic. She was breastfed exclusively until 4wks when two bouts of mastitis & a death in the family made me really struggle with breastfeeding so I switched to formula.
She had always been windy even on the boob, but it's been bad lately (3days). It happens throughout the day so I don't believe its colic. She has been screaming in pain and her tummy get so hard and I can hear stuff rumbling around. I calm her down and then happens again - vicious cycle.
We use Dr Browns bottles (tried MAM, didn't have much luck at all), add infacol, burp her at least 3 time during feeds, keep her up right for about 30mins after as well and use infants friend. Loads of flatulence.
She has a BM pretty much every day and (sorry TMI) is green, thick like peanut butter. She catnaps during the day (only one sleep cycle really) but sleeps through the night. I have the wonder weeks app and she had her first leap last week.
I just wanted to know if anyone has any formula suggestions? Would lactose free help? Or if it could be silent reflux? I am confused about the symptoms I read on spilt milk. Constipation?
I just don't know where to go next!
