I just don't know what to do about 4.5mo DS. I feel completely useless and confused and upset. I made the difficult decision to wean him on to formula due to poor weight gain and CMPI, which I'm doing slowly. After some initial good signs after introducing formula comps and eliminating milk protein from my diet, he's now gone back to mucousy poo, nasty nappy rash (this is a new thing), small weight gains and is now barely sleeping during the day. He's pretty good at night usually but last night and tonight it has taken ages to get him to sleep and stay asleep. I'm really worried that the formula (AllerPro) isn't working for him and is causing more problems. I'm now freaking out and hating myself for not persevering with breastfeeding.
WTF do I do?? I doubt I'll be able to see his paed until well into the new year. My supply has always been fragile and when BFing I need to feed at least every 2hrs just to get a small weight gain on him. I've probably destroyed my supply now that we've started the weaning process. I am stressing about his weight, his poo, his sleep... WTF do I do??
I'm sick with a head cold and sinus pain and DD got sent home from daycare with runny poo and is now all stuffy as well - obviously these things are not helping my coping ability right now.
