Dp is against the chiro. Liv thats why we went to soy. We did ok for a few days and now we have screaming, kicking, clawing at me with her hands and just wont settle after feeds. Its taking up to 2 hrs after a feed to settle her. Losec hasnt had a good chance to work as she spits the dissolved tablet out and we only started liquid losec yesterday....we also have vomiting too and crying when she vomits.. She drinks the bottles.without any problems but its afterwards....See paed tomorrow again for 6 week check but Im so fed up and emotionally down. I dont know if its just reflux now or a soy intolerance too or if there is somwthing else.going on. DP on night shift and afternoon shifts so Im on my own. DP is here but easily shuts off and sleeps. If he does get up he.just stares at me saying he doesnt know what to do.

My niece had much of the same problems your baby is having and a chiro was the ONLY thing that helped her. I'm still trying to wrap my head around what someone could have against a chiro. They are people in the medical profession who have spend a minimum of 4-6 years studying their profession so what's there to be against? Is he against GP's too?
I think your DP needs to put your baby's needs first before what he wants. Sounds selfish to say you're against something when you're clearly not the one suffering. Your poor baby girl is
I'm not having a go at you please understand as you clearly sound like you are doing everything in your power to help your baby but I just really think this debacle could all be solved with a chiro.

Why is he against them? Loads of babies on here have responded fantastically to a chiro - perhaps if knows that it really might help her then he would reconsider?
DS had a CMPI test done (poo sample) so perhaps ask for this? He did have a mild intolerance but on paed advice we kept going with Bellamy's as it was so mild and he just grew out of it (wasn't suffering either of course).
Goats milk formula is an alternative to soy as well.

We're you told with the losec compound to give it straight away after shaking it up? Otherwise the active ingredient stops being effective. Are you giving it with a syringe? Does she take a dummy? What i did with the losec a few times is put it in a teat like a dummy and she sucks it down. Not a good long term solution if it's hard but it worked for me to see if it was helping. Apparently the losec will peak at about a week then that's it. And just FYI, you have to dose more losec than Zantac too. So smaller dose is easier to get in if you know what I mean.
I tried chiro too but she was awful after it and my paed advised against it.
Have you tried massaging her abdomen gently in a clockwise direction? This is something I do to help get the wind out too. You probably have?
I was alone for three days last week while my DH was away on business, I was anxious and everything about going it alone. I can understand that too.

Sorry but I have to agree with your DH re chiros. I personally and professionally know 4 people who have had a stroke (young, fit people) after seeing a chiro. The chiro manipulated their neck and gave them a vertebral artery dissection. That's one reason why most doctors don't like chiropractors.
Op, sorry things are still very up and down.

The odds of that happening are 1 in 250 million visits (that statistic was taken off the web) so the fact you know 4 people that it happened to means you need to be buying yourself a lottery ticket!
Seriously though, millions of people visit chiros and nothing happens to them. I'm sure you'd be hard pressed to find someone on the hub who has had this happen to them at a chiro
OP I have the most AMAZING chiro on the planet (or so I reckon!) so if you're in Sydney and want the details I'd be happy to pass them on to at least go and see him for a consult as he really is a genius in his field.

This is the problem when no offence, someone doesn't have the knowledge in what they are talking about.

That said, I have been to the chiro myself (I haven't found it at all helpful to my back, personally) But I have to say, I wouldn't take a baby to one. The Australian Medical Association says there is no benefit in chiropractic treatment for babies and it may actually be bad for them.
OP, I've been following your thread, I do hope things ease soon!
