    Default Fussy during feeds

    DS is 3 weeks old and he's been fussing a lot during feeds.
    80% of the time during feeds he would suck on the bottle then pull away crying, then back on the bottle again then pull away again. He does the same with breast. He does eventually finished the feed. He poops good 1-2 times a day. Gassy- always farting.
    I looked at signs of silent reflux, he presents only 2 or 3 symptoms out of the list of 15.
    Most of the time it's just the day time feeds he most fusses.
    He generally sleeps quite well, but when he's awake he's pretty much either feeding or whinging all the time unless cuddled upright. Rarely he would be content and happy.
    I just can't figure out what's wrong with him.
    Any advice or ideas are welcome! Thanks!

    Sounds like silent reflux to me. My DS was exactly the same as a newborn, and so were my cousin's two kids. You could ask your paed/GP about Losec and whether they think it will help. It made a bit of. Difference for us, not massive, but I have a lot of friends who swore by it. Good luck, I know how horribly frustrating the constant whinging, fussing and pulling off boob and bottle is!
