Chiropractors use barely any force when adjusting infants, I'm taking my LO in today and at my last adjustment my chiro demonstrated how much force he'll use and I could barely feel it.

KW123, we had a terrible night, one of our worst yet, & she still won't sleep now. I'm counting the seconds til DP gets home & I can get away from her for a while.

You def sound like your doing an amazing job in a tough situation, don't ever doubt that.
I have a pretty unsettled newborn who doesn't sleep all that much, the evenings are the worst with screaming. I give bub a bottle with water and gripe water to get up any wind she may have. It works alot!! May be worth a try.

Maybe also try a different style dummy? Babies can be fussy.

With the dummy I do a trick that works sometimes. I put baby on boob, then when he is settled and suckling for comfort I do the switch from nipple to dummy very quickly. As I said it works at times only and he will sleep with the dummy.
It sounds like you will get a good long shower and a nap this arvo

I've tried loads of different dummies, she hates them all, but I'll try the old switcharoo & see if that works.

Oh honey... It sounds so much like silent reflux! My 11 month old had it as a newborn and with a toddler as well it was horrible - she screamed for 12 hours a day! We saw the paed at 6 weeks who put her on medication and it certainly did help! The days we missed the dose, the next day was hell! She was on meds for about 12 weeks.
It heartbreaking feeling like you are helpless and knowing that there is nothing else you can do for them except what you're already doing? Do you have a partner? Are they supportive?
We also took bub to a chiro, and whilst I don't think she was the be all and end all, I do believe she helped! Does a warm bath help your bub? Also, giving her wind drops ie. Infants Friend / Infacol / or Gripw Water will help. My GP also recommended Infant Gaviscon.
We also had a baby hammock which helped a lot.
Now that DD2 has started solids and crawling, we have just gone through 3 moths of projectile vomiting with the reflux!
Good luck and if you need to chat, or want any more info, please PM me.

Also, if she has silent reflux, by feeding her constantly, you may actually be 'overfilling' her, which may be making her more uncomfortable. They love to suck as the sucking motion soothes the burning sensation caused by the reflux. Was she a smaller bub at birth?

If she screams all night again, take her to the hospital. I had a friend who did that. She said she refused to leave until they did something to help her. They did. They made referrals and did some tests. My daughter woke up screaming quite a few times but your night sounds dreadful.
