Hi everyone, I'm a new mum probably being very paranoid about my 3 week old dd but would be very grateful for some quick advice. Since last night she's been spitting up after a feed more than usual and much more fussy than normal. Today she's also been a lot easier to put down for a nap (after being up for about 1hr 40 min - usually stays up for over 2 hrs before I can get her to sleep). I don't know whether to ring the midwife / doctor - she's not projectile vomitting, she's still doing poos, and she's just bringing back milk. Has she just got a dodgy stomach today and is it something that will pass or should I get her checked out?
if i were you i would give the health visitor a call not because i think there is something wrong but to put ur mind at rest. dd did this a couple of weeks ago and i took her to the docs he said he would rather see a healthy baby than not see a ill one and babies can get ill quite quick. wont tell you what happened later as dont want to scare you but im sure she is fine
Hi, thanks for your replies. She's breastfed. I guess I'm worrying about whether she's suddenly developed reflux or not. I've rung and left a message with the HV, better to put my mind at ease. I guess I'm most preturbed about why she's been easier to get to sleep today than usual. Maybe I should be grateful.
