My dd is 4 weeks old and keeps being sick after every feed. She feeds constantlly through the day and only sleeps twice in the day and cluster feeds morning and evening. It's exhausting. After feeding for four to five hours I ask dh to top her up with formula or ebm if I've got it but then she still wants to go on the breast. She's not very settled so there's no chance she will sleep in her Moses. She extremly windy, farts all the time does massive burps. She had tongue tie snipped, latch is great apparently. Called all helplines but nothing I haven't heard before. Went to osteopath yesterday as that helped my dd1 who was also breastfed. But that hasn't really helped dd2 apart from make her sleep ages yesterday afternoon. Worst £40 I ever spent lol. What am I doing wrong. All this feeding is exhausting, close to giving up tbh. I can't even put dd1 to bed or wake up with her which really makes me very sad. I really don't know what to do.

I'm going to really try my very hardest to avoid dairy and see if it helps. I'm trying out bottles today to see if that helps at all. Tbh after having a bottle this morning she seems like she wants to go in the breast lol. Just pumping so I can give her my milk too. Yesterday was exhausting and my dh said its not fair on dd1 when I breastfeed for so long. He's right I guess. Dd2 seems unsettled still after her bottle.
