    Default Very stinky baby!!

    My 5 week old is both breast and formula fed. He had incredibly smelly wind and poos. It is so bad that I am having to bath him twice daily just to keep the smell manageable. I am assuming that it must be the formula that is causing this. I am using Nan HA Gold stage 1 as this is what was used and recommended when I was in hospital. Has anyone had a similar experience? Is there a better formula out there?

    A few comments. First, have you reviewed the need for supplemental feeding with a Lactation Consultant? There are few conditions that can cause offensive smelling faeces. These would have other symptoms though. Have you discussed this with a family/child focused GP?

    Thanks Lyricsdad. I have been working with a lactation consultant as I really wanted to breastfeed. Unfortunately it doesn't look like I will be able to long term as I have a very low supply that is dwindling despite expressing after every feed and taking molitium. I also only have only ever had 1 breast that has been able to produce milk.

    I am seeing the paediatrician on Friday so I am hoping she will be able to help
