    I'm wondering if you can get sunnies from the optometrist without needing a prescription? (As in, eyes work perfectly fine)

    Probably but they might be more expensive than normal sunnies.

    Wondering, those of you in Adelaide what tog rating sleeping bags are your bubs in? We’re heading down in a few weeks and I’m always cold when I’m down there. Obviously I can layer bub up, but he’s a crap sleeper normally, so I don’t want to make it worse by him being cold too.

    I am trying not to freak out. Friday I spoke to the GP about reflux. She told me to express my milk and mix it with cornflour for miss 6 weeks.

    Today I'm seeing someone different. I didn't get her to sleep til 1.45am last night and that's not a once off.

    Now her weight is starting to slow. 20210616_083548.jpg

    Mixing it with cornflour seems like a strange recommendation to me? I think keep expressing to get your supply really good, but surely formula top ups or changing formula would be better than cornflour?

    I wouldn’t freak out too much. Remember formula is always there as an option for you

    I would assume the cornflour is to thicken the milk to help with the reflux… it’s not something I’ve ever heard of before. Don’t agree with it, you can buy thickeners specifically for that reason. Can you talk to a GP/IBCLC? There’s one at Highgate Hill I’ve seen. Not the easiest location to get to but you might get better advice.

    At the moment I'm only breastfeeding. I have heaps of milk. I'd rather breastfeed cause formula is so time consuming

    My DD had bad reflux and we ended up having to put her on omeprazole from memory once a day from around 2.5 months (took a while to see paed) to 6 months, it worked great. There was one other option that the paed recommended but she went great on this that we never looked into it further. I know you can get thickeners at chemist from brands like aptamil specifically to use to thicken breastmilk or formula, they are pretty specific about not using in premature babies and can’t store in fridge as it gets thicker and thicker. Could be worth a try though or maybe ask speak to the GP or see if you can get a referral to see a paediatrician too?
