Hi, Am really hoping someone can help me with my DD. I'm a ftm. If this is long and a bit jumbled I apologise....lack of sleep!!

She's a happy and alert little girl, very smiley. She was ebf until 10 weeks and is now mix fed. She has mostly ff during the day and has bf top ups/comfort. If she wakes for a feed in the night she is bf.

Every feed I give her during the day is sicked back up...more than mere posseting but not all at once...can come and go for a couple of hours. She has gone through phases of this being better and worse.

Today I can't lie her on her back as she will cry (loudly) and when I pick her up she is sick. This the same if bf or ff. She has gone from feeding every 3 hours to feeding every 2 or so. She doesn't finish her bottle though. About 2/3 mostly. It's like having a new born again. Except naps are short.

Over night we have no issues due to feeding. She sleeps really well from her 10pm feed until about 3am, when I bf her, then fusses for her dummy until her 7am feed...not crying though.

Help! Growth spurt, reflux, regression, teething something else?!

Thanks for reading smile x

Sounds like reflux to me (disclaimer - am parenting amateur, not hcp). They can comfort drink because while drinking they aren't reflux ing the acid - might explain increase in feeds? Is her weight gain good and consistent?

I could be wrong but it sounds to me like reflux, possibly caused by cows milk protein allergy. Not lactose intolerance as she's not throwing up your breast milk.

Actually I might have misread that.

Sorry, just reread... Rather unhelpfully though it could also be all of the above instead/as well! See a GP who could prescribe stay-down formula. Hope all is well
