T has been loads better on it tbh, she is hardly sick anymore!
She was constipated for a day when we first started but all back to normal now

we started on follow on and hes been fine. he was on aptimel 1 since birth but someone gave us a tub of cow and gate follow on and he had no adverse reactions at all. but once that tub was done i tried the aptimel follow on and he kept refusing feeds. so went back to cow and gate and hes guzzling happily again. also started good night milk last week and it seems to do the job. a much happier baby at night .

A friend of mine's ds became violently sick on it, and when she spoke to her midwife her midwife called it the sicky milk! Don't think that's the case for all babies, but i think it can affect some. xx

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
