Hi, I'm a FTM to a gorgeous 8 week old baby girl. She is mixed fed due to poor supply and taking Bellamys organic formula.
Over the past 3 weeks my poor babe has become really irritated, coughing, choking and spluttering during feeding. She screams out in pain when she's put down as well as drooling a lot. She's really snuffly and its effecting her breathing especially at night.
She's had a cold so initially I thought it was just that but the symptoms are getting worse. I think she has silent reflux.
She is awake from about 1am and just irritated all night. During the day she barely naps and usually only in my arms. We are all exhausted and I just want to help her but I can't. She probably takes 100mls every 2-3 hours and the occasional breast feed. (she's too fussy now to feed on the breast and just screams)
I've changed her bottles from medela Calma to Dr Browns with a pretty good response. I was using infants friend with no real improvement so Two days ago I put her on the Padbury Pharmacy reflux mixture. I sit her up after each feed but she doesn't seem to burp much. She farts a lot and does a poo almost every day. She has a long warm shower every night and then I give her tummy a massage.
What else can I do? I'm all out of ideas and my poor baby is suffering
