    There is a product you can get at the chemist called infant gaviscon, to treat reflux without a prescription. Im not sure of how young it can be given, but you can use it to test if he has reflux - if he does, giving him the infant gaviscon should make a marked difference in his temperament. Also, does he have any signs of food intolerance? How are his bowels? Does he have frequent, explosive, frothy poos? Another thing i did was look on youtube at a 'colic massage' - really helped if my bubbas had wind & a sore belly. Might be none of the above, but those are some things you might be able to rule out...

    I took my rs to hospital 7 times in his first 3 weeks of life telling them he has silent reflux and cmpi before they listened to me about the reflux it was a further 7 weeks and numerous hospital visits before he was diagnosed with cmpi as well. Trust your gut mother's know best. Good luck.

    I've posted before in other threads, I'd definetly get that tt seen to. You have feeding issues and a baby with a tt. The LC should have advised you look into getting it snipped or lasered instead of letting you keep struggling.

    There is a laser dentist at Milton who does it. It will set you back close to a grand. If you have phi its covered under major dental bracket. ive got the item number somewhere so ill have a look for it. you can ring your phi to see what rebate you can get. If money doesn't stretch that far, Russell med centre at mt gravatt will snip roughly $200 after Medicare rebate or $30 if you've reached the medicare threshold. After laser/scissor revision please follow up with chiro or osteo to release the tightness of neck, jaw and palate caused by tt. You may need to attend weekly for a good number of weeks to see improvement.

    Next, Ill speak as a mum to a high needs baby. Yes, they are hard babies. They dont follow routine, they cry more, are wingy, whiny and appear more unsettled than other babies and they sleep a heck of a lot less than other babies. Mine fought sleep to the end due to his strong willed nature. He was a sleep fighter like no other. He just did not sleep. Ever. You need to get used to it and find ways to cope. I say this as a mum who had severe and debilitating pnd, a high needs baby who never slept, therefore I never slept, and also a mum who had no external support or family other than my husband to relieve me and give me a break.

    These babies are VERY smart so you need to channel that energy into stimulation for them. They get bored easy and need to be entertained in their every waking moment. Yes, I kid you not, I would spend and devote my ENTIRE day to entertaining my DS. They won't let you do anything else, they are demanding of you and unfortunetly will suck every ounce of your strength from you. They are hard. Very, very hard but highly intelligent and inquisitive children.

    Please please seek extra support OP. If with daycare, nanny etc for respite and your own sanity. Having 'every ounce of your strength sucked' sounds like a recipe for disaster and a breakdown.

    Sounds like my every day life. Only I don't have anyone at all to relieve me.

    I'm just going to tell you things that have helped my girls:
    - baby swing. Proper cradle big one, as a PP said fisher price do a good cradle swing. Those space saving ones aren't as good. I love the little lamb one.
    - I would try formula. You have nothing to lose.
    - infants friends can calm an upset tummy. Try a bit every second feed,
    - keep him upright as much as possible during the day.
    - try putting him in front of the bouncer in front of the tv. Shows like in the night garden are very colourful and hold their attention well.

    Look none of those suggestions are going to win me mother of the year, but we all need to give ourselves a break and do what works.

    Definitely get a second opinion about the reflux because it does sound like that could be part of the problem. But in saying that, some babies are just criers IMO. My DS was the same, he never had reflux but he cried whenever we put him down. He seemed to like the swing or bouncer for short periods but I found it hard to wear him when he was tiny (I only had a ring sling and I wasn't very good at using it).
    I never did any of the SOS stuff and never left him to cry unless I had to. The one time I did try letting him "cry it out" he got himself so worked up he almost choked and he didn't settle for hours. It was traumatic for both of us so I never did it again. I know it works for some babies but unfortunately, for some of us, it doesn't.

    Sorry if I missed this but how old is your bub? I found the first 2 months or so were really, really hard in terms of his crying and lack of sleep etc but after that he seemed to be more and more settled as he got older.
