Yeah breastmilk is apparently easier to handle for them. I know you're not particularly enjoying BFing though so see how you go.
I haven't cut out dairy, I wanted to keep everything normal to see how he goes. I'll only cut it out if there's an indication of CMPI.
Gosh, this newborn caper doesn't get any easier does it!

I've tried infacol today it's amazing DD's wind is soooooi much better if your DS has wind to.
How's DS hope he's still settled for you. 😘😘

Good on you for booking a PT! I'm planning on starting a mums & bubs exercise class after my 6wk check. I don't have much to lose really but it's more about feeling less floppy!
DS is actually pretty efficient at burping and farting (such a boy!) so I now don't think wind is too much of an issue here. I think he just has unsettled periods from overstimulation or being overtired. He's been very settled the last few days though, despite having a stuffy nose.
About to head to the clinic, fingers crossed for a good weight gain!!

Cue let us know how his weight goes. Dd didn't put on weight for weeks but it's all good now.
Never thought I'd wish for someone to actually fart more haha

Not good news unfortunately
He hasn't regained his birth weight (will be 3 weeks old on Friday). He's had a 200g gain since discharge. It's not terrible news but I'm really disappointed. The LC wants me to start motillium and change to switch feeding to boost supply and we're also trying to improve his latch.
Feeling really deflated and upset, why can't it just be easy.

Big hugs hun. It's such a hard thing to go through an intolerance and reflux and have that part of you hope and pray your next bub is that little bit easier. So completely normal to think that way.
At least you have some advice and 200gms isn't too bad really.
Can I ask what switch feeding is?

I've only just seen this but both my babies were fully bf and had CMPI. The biggest symptoms were blood in stool (though it didn't happen with my second baby), mucus (snot like consistency), it smelt horrendous (bf poo's don't usually smell that bad but mine did) and they did lots and lots (30+ explosive poo's a day).
You could always check by cutting out all dairy and soy for a week and comparing the difference..

Switch feeding - basically feed on one side while he's sucking well, then switch to the other side, then burp and nappy change, then offer both sides again. Use breast compressions on the second round if he gets sleepy or lazy. The idea is to boost my supply to encourage his to feed more, she said babies are all about effort/reward so if there's extra milk there he'll get more for his effort which then encourages him to try harder. Anyhoo, I'll give it a go and see how his weight goes. Follow up appointment on Tuesday.
