    Choccie, sorry you and Axle are having so many issues. As if motherhood isn't hard enough, you get all this thrown at you as well.

    Thanks for your comments in reflux. It seemed to me that about 75% of my DIG is saying their babies have reflux. I wasn't aware that it was so common, but perhaps it's more that most of them don't actually know what reflux is. I have no idea. Sienna throws up heaps after she feeds. The pediatrician says she's a happy chucker as she's never bothered by it. Clearly not reflux, thank god.

    I hope you can get Axle's problems sorted out, to make things happier for all of you. I'm glad your MIL is there helping you. Take care

    Here's a pic of Sienna. She was 8 weeks on Wednesday

    I realised yesterday that this is just Chelsea and I need to accept that I am going to be up a lot during the nights.
    However really really trying to stick to the SOS routine as much as possible. Chelsea though doesn't want to eat the 25 mins one side, 15 the other. Tonight over about 50 mins we managed 20 mins one side, but then spent over an hour burping & she seemed to be in a bit of pain. This is the first time I am considering that maybe she has reflux? But I still think she is jut drinking too much as I try and make her do the 25 mins. As of last night, we decided to give EBM for the night milk, about 150mls and again, seemed to upset her a bit, but then DH made both us do the crying til she fell asleep and she then slept almost 3 hours!! Just all a bit confusing!
    My mum arrives tomorrow, so hopefully she can see if there is anything else we can try!!
    Again massive hugs Choccie xx
    You don't need to stop posting. We're all here for support. I hope things get a little easier and you get more sleep. Hopefully SOS works or at least some of it

    Miss X we do SOS routine too. But Ava has never fed for 25mins on one side. I only ever feed her until she stops. Burp her then change sides. I used to think the 25mins meant feed at the boob but I had people tell me that the feed time included burping... I don't know if this is right either. my advice would be to watch her cues for signs that she is finished or has wind and be less worried about time spent on the boob.

    Please don't stop posting, that's what we are here for. It's a tough gig and don't feel you have to suffer in silence. As others have said, we can all offer support and advice and you can take what you want. Hugs to you

    Oh Choccie I'm sorry things have been so tough for you with Axle. I have been thinking of you. I can only imagine how frustrating it is for you. You sound as though you are doing everything for him. I hope you get some relief soon. Hugs

    Thanks ladies! Slowly we are making progress with the new medication and a few new things we have tried. I have put him back onto normal goats formula yesterday rather than the prescription formula to see if he can handle it and so far so good, today is day two lol so I hope he doesn't go backwards :/.

    Lil smurf - a chucky/spewy baby is not a baby with reflux, reflux is where the acid from the stomach comes back up the esophagus and burns, sometimes coming all the way up with spew. It's exactly what adults know as heart burn, just they can't tell us when it hurts! Axle has a weak sphincter flap which means the acid is not held down in the tummy until the flap strengthens, medication neutralizes the acid but having the right medication and right dosage is the key to stop inflammation and on going issues like food refusal. Hope that clears it up better?

    The first sign of reflux for us was when axle was 6 weeks old and started crying to burp and after burping, like it was painful and he was trying to avoid it if that makes sense? He went onto medication then.

    Poor DD has been soon neglected for the last month and a half! If I only had one kid to deal with it would be so hard but throw a toddler in there along with the rest of the household duties and things start to get tough that's for sure!

    MissX - don't stop posting, post all the questions you need! If you don't ask you want have different opinions to consider!!

    I'm on my phone and can't remember the other posts!
