    I'm sorry that you are having such a tough time with your LO. My 4th daughter who just turned one seemed to have the same feeding problems and we tried everything 5 different formulas, chiro, losec, infants friend and infacol. The goats formula was the only formula she could tolerate in the end, she would get all bound up by the others. But now after all that drama it turned out she actually had constant throat infections the whole time which they kept saying she had a red throat from her reflux and is getting her tonsils out next month at 13 months old

    Also if you are having trouble getting the losec into her then take the script to the compounding chemist and they can make up a liquid version for you.

    the soy formula seems to be better but she still takes ages to settle after a bottle....crying, grizzly, clawing at me, screaming....but it doesnt last long...
    the losec tablet is useless just makes her gag and she just spits it out. so we have the script made up in liquid so will see how we go. im still struggling and dp and i still having issues.

    Have you tried Bellamy's?

    And what do you think about seeing a chiro?

    Don't know I'd this has been mentioned but there's a lot of belief out there that losec doesn't really work after its been compounded. Even the hospitals here in qld don't put it in the compound. I had some made up for my dd last week on the advice if another paediatrician but even I can see its probably peaked and no longer is effective. Zantac is another good option.

    I can understand a little of what you are struggling with as my 13 week old has many issues that are complicated to do with her heart and she has a rare syndrome. This causes feeding problems which I'm still trying to sort out. My paediatrician actually offered to admit my little one overnight or for even two nights so the nurses can feed her and observe the issues. And also to give me some rest (she feeds every 2-3 hours around the clock so I don't get sleep). Is this a possibility you could enquire about? This way the doctors can observe her to see what is happening with feeds to clearer picture? (you can probably still stay with her if you want) is she gaining weight? Also have they discuss any kind of tests to see what is going on in her digestive system? If nothing is working there may be a simple issue going on that can be fixed. Keep advocating for her, even when it's tiring, you are doing an awesome job holding it together. I have days where I feel completely overwhelmed by all the problems I face with her and being tired doesn't help the stress.

    Some of these things may have been suggested already but just thought I'd put the idea out there.
