Sorry if this post has been done before. I'm looking for advice on finding the right element / hydrolysed formula.
My DS is 11 weeks old has moderate silent reflux and a Cmpi. He has been on losec for 3 weeks and alfamino for 9 days.
When we first started the alfamino he began to settle and so did his reflux. We believe his Cmpi is causing his reflux. However the last 5 days has seen him get increasingly irritable. He is not in any pain but tossing about after a feed. Not sleeping or napping well, wanting to suck (which he does when he is unsettled or in pain) rubbing his head into me, kicking off me, he is clearly being irritated by something. But, he also has watery mucousy poos. He is also really gassy, both ends, and that seems to be causing him issues too
My paed says continue with the formula! I know it can take a while but how could something that is meant to be good for him make him worse?
Does it get worse before it gets better?
At what point do we change formula?
What would be in this formula that isn't in another elements/hydrolysed Formula?
Why are his poos watery and mucousy?
Could he have an intolerance to something else as is he too young to find out?
Has anyone been through this and can shed some light?
