I really hope you get the support you need. Sounds like you and DS are both having a really tough time.
To your family. It must be so hard. I really hope you all get some rest soon. If it is reflux , the right medication should really help. A lot of people swear by losec. I don't know a lot about reflux but it does sound like there needs to be something done to help your DS rather than you just having a difficult baby.
You will get through this.

LMM, I have no advice but wanted to offer hugs and say I am thinking of you - I hope the MCHN was able to offer some help yesterday.

My mchn was wonderful. she really was. i didnt even know this and my dr never told me, the anti biotics he is on can really upset them. basically turns their gut to slosh, making them want to feed more often. I told her everything he was doing (not sleeping, feeding frequently, unsettled, generally miserable all day, not wanting to be left alone, hates floor time) and He's become worse and she said its all because of the ani biotics and to expect it to continue for a few days after he's finished the dose.
He may have silent reflux, she suggested we look into it just to rule it out or fix it.
She was watching ds as he fixed his eyes on a piece of paper on the floor then reached out and picked it up and it went straight to his mouth. She said offer solids now - i can do BLW as i wanted to, he'll be fine. She weighed him and he's actually a massive 8kg baby. I had no idea. So he's a hungry boy, no wonder i ws having trouble keeping up with him.
She also helped me out with weaning ds onto formula. i had no idea what to do. She was so supportive. i simply said "i dont want to breastfeed anymore" and she said "you dont have to, lets make a plan for you to wean gently...."
She has set up Home Help ( i feel very guilty getting this, there must be more needy (old) people needing this service much more than i do) its not costing me anything. A lady is coming out today and then weekly for 6 weeks to clean the house, do some washing, strip the beds ect...she already sounds like an angel.
I have weekly follow up aptts with my mchn. She said if i cant get to her, she can come to me after she finishes work from 5pm. suits me.
She understands i dont want physch or councelling help or to be on medication. She thinks with regular checkups with her and some extra help around the house, things will seem easier with time.....the family will blend again and we will work out a routine, in time.
It seems all i needed to do was reach out to someone and tell them i need help.
I tried for too long to dismiss my feelings and do it all by myself.
There are people out there that wont judge but are there to help and listen and guide you in the right direction, im just lucky i found someone like that.
I feel like there is a plan of action in place now and when it all boils up again and i get those concerning feelings back again, i know who can help me. Plus she's 5mins around the corner from my house.
I hope others can read and take something from this thread. I was in a horrible place, sort of still am, but i sought help when i knew i couldnt do it alone anymore.
Thanks for the advice and suport of everyone who posted to me. It means alot xxxx

Oh, I'm so, so, glad, for you and your little ones.
Imagine how differently you would have felt if your doctor had told you this info!
Don't feel guilty for accessing help - you know you've been struggling long enough...

I'm so happy so much help has been offered to you! Don't feel guilty for accepting it - that's why these services are available to help people and it really sounds like you need/deserve a big break!
All the best for the future I hope life settles down for you and your family soon.

I'm so glad LMM! It must be such a relief to know you're not alone and have a plan to fix things. And stop with that stuff about there being people more needy. You need the help and you deserve it. I'm so glad you reached out and that the response was so positive. Please keep us updated, there are lots of us who were very worried about you x
