    @green tea: small frequent meal is good for reflux, I reckon. It is very difficult forbid to limit DS intake to 90ml per feed. Most of the time we ended up adding 30ml more if my BF isn't going well.

    Also, what do u do when Bub has reflux and wanting to have something to soothe the throat? Milk? Water? We give him more formula but I suspect the sucking reflex might make him to over eat? The child health nurse said that baby would stop if they have enough. I don't think so given that he gulped in bottle after bottle in the past!

    It looks like we have two problems, reflux and wind. If we can ease the wind, we only have to deal with reflux which is more of a long term problem.

    As for formula, HA type is mentioned. What do u ladies think? Karicare specifically.

    We are sticking to nan comfort and will try infacol and see it helps first before changing the formula.

    Ok, if chiro helps, anyone in Perth wants to recommend a good one? Does it help with wind?

    Did you end up getting the colic mixture? I found that helped and after 2 doses of losec and the chiro we noticed an improvement

    I didn't get the padbury mixture. It is far north from where i live and shipping isn't a good option. I am keen to know what is put in there, though. I'm trying the infacol tonight and then think about changing the formula next. The change in formula is mainly to cope with wind.

    It can sometimes just take time for their tummies to settle. Around 8-10 weeks most parents see an improvement in the colic

    @PinkPosicle: 8--10w? Is this an optimistic timeline? I really hope so! My colleague said 1yr. The other said 6m. Trying to manage expectation here. He was in an agony again last night. It broke my heart. we saw his first smile on Monday and knowing he can be a happy baby rather than miserable all the time.

    @bbhope i cannot send you any more pm as it says your mailbox is full, so in reply to your question about the glider chair - Mine only squeeks sometimes when dh sits in it, he's heavier than i am though so not sure if it's the weight. If you like it and it does start to squeek you can always just use a bit of oil or wd40 on the squeeky part.

    Just on this ours is the same. Only squeaks something depending on if you are sitting to one side more though I found. It is fine though more than it squeaks if that make sense.
