Today is his due date and he's been in our lives for 6 days ❤️
I absolutely love that you called him Ralph! Its amazingly cute!!
I too have had a bad night.
Layth was put on Gaviscon due to showing signs of silent reflux, he never vomits but often pulls his knees up in pain and fusses at the breast
He has been pooping like mad but now the gaviscon seems to be making him constipated and he's worse.
Am not giving him anymore today.
I have loads of milk sometimes I wonder if it comes out too fast and that's causing the issue.
I expressed yesterday and even tried him with a bottle and teat during the night but he has no idea how to suck it and refused it completely (am fine with that in all honesty)
Anyone else think their wee ones may have a tummy issue?
Dylan has been gassier as of late and pooping a lot but I'm not overly concerned he still settles and hasn't shown any signs of reflux (yet) after seeing my sisters babies in so much distress with it I dread it happening to him.
I'm trying to get him to take milk a bit slower for longer, he guzzles like no tomorrow then is super gassy. Trying to lean back and get him to control the milk flow a bit better.
Can you get anyone to help with the boiler?! So sorry you're having it rough lady ❤️
@RememberToBreathe I'm having that issue, I'll feed him at night and 30 minutes later he's hungry again and dad is having to wake me up again as he won't settle!
My first had silent reflux but second was absolutely fine.
He wants on the boob but when the milk comes he pulls off and cries, it's heartbreaking.
Gosh all 3 babies had it, that's awful.
Did your sister use gaviscon? Wonder why some babies are more prone?
I dont see maybe slowing the milk flow harming him, it might be a bit more comfortable if he fills up slowly.
I find Dylan will burp quite well after or I between boobs when feeding, he does have a lot of bottom gas though and is a constant poo machine! Explosive mustardy poop. Yum.
I hope you get the boiler to stop leaking lovely, what a pain!
I have been snacking on plain biscuits tho and am always ravenous even during the night!! Shocking!
We had trouble getting Dylan to settle in his cot, it's still a work in progress but on a night we have a routine of feed, change, cuddle lay in cot. We have a ewan the sheep soother which glows and plays white noise/heart beat sounds and is cry activated. We had tried a few different combos but white noise really helps him settle so it means I can get a couple of hours sleep between feeding and changing.
You can try playing white noise on your phone? See if it helps him to settle. I've gotten used to sleeping with the noise 😂 he's still not 100% there during the night with his cot but it's a work in progress. He would happily just sleep on me or OH. But in order to function we need a little rest!
