I've gone from having a very contented baby, taking full 6oz feeds regularly to a fussy, distressed baby who can take as little as 2oz per feed 🤷‍♀️
Worried she was colicky so tried infacol but it made her sick.
Ended up at doctor as her feeding volume was less than half of normal for a day and a half, they think its reflux so shes now on infant gaviscon.
Doctor also thinks shes teething! I didnt think that would start so early but doc had a good feel of her gums and said it looks likely 🤦‍♀️
Would make sense as shes very rosy cheeked and refusing feeds as she would rather just chew on the teat instead.
At a bit of a loss as most teething relief products seem to be for 3 months + and she is only 9 weeks old at the moment.
Does anyone else have experience of their child teething so early?

Hi. Yeah our DD is 3 months and she has been showing signs for a while now. You can use infant calpol, its suitable from 2 months.

My daughter is 2 now but started teething at 3 months, although her first tooth didn’t break until she was 6 months. At three months she was too young to understand how to use a teether so we used calpol when she was really upset. She also had reflux so I sympathise, gaviscon didn’t work on it’s so the paediatrician prescribed omeprazole which really helped. Good luck x
