HELP! 3 Week old baby has been crying day/night after feed since 3 days old
Hello really need some help as i am a new mum and will listen to anybodies advise as i hate seeing my little girl like this. This is quite long so i will start from the beginning!
My little girl was 3 days old when she started crying/screaming after every feed (yes she is bottle fed) it takes me an hour to feed her and then another hour to settle her. She was on SMA pro at this stage and by day 6 we started infacol 5 minutes before every feed. On day 7 she cried for 7 hours straight and I called my friend who is a midwife because i was concerned! She told me to change to Aptamil Comfort to treat colic, change to tommee tippee anti colic bottles and also change to a size 2 teat as she was struggling to feed. By day 17 of no sleep I decided to go to the doctor for his opinion (my health visitor is rubbish and has been no help at all!) He put her onto Gaviscon for silent reflux however this hasn't done anything except make her constipated! On day 19 I tried her on gripe water and this still hasn't made a difference. I've been to reflexology and learnt how to do this and also baby massage classes but nothing seems to help at all. She will only sleep in my arms but then I cant sleep so my eyes are held open by pegs!!! Someone has told me about their little one and they were the same, they decided to change their milk to SMA Soya, has anyone done this? did it help? I don't know what else to do!!
