.... I need some help!
S is now 5+3 and my poor little man is suffering terribly with colic and reflux. We've got him on infacol, gripe water and gaviscon, and we're feeding him ready made Aptamil (as it's thicker than the powdered stuff as I'm sure you lot know). Every feed is a nightmare - I keep him upright during feeding but he's still in pain, and it takes forever to get his bottle down. I then keep him on my shoulder for at least half an hour to stop him being sick - which is inevitable if he lies down. But then I can't do anything while I'm holding him, let alone sleep or shower. I spend most of my time in my pj's as I can rarely get dressed. By the time his milk has safely gone down its usually time for his next feed. I'm exhausted. I've tried putting him in a baby carrier so that I can do a few things between feeds but he can't stay in there all day. Plus if he's sick in there we both need a full change of clothes.
I love him so much but some days I am just so frustrated that I have to put him down and walk out of the room while he cries. And then I feel bad cos all he wants is comfort.
What can I do to help him?
