Nutramigen possibly not working?

Last Friday we were give Nutramigen for our 2 week old and after a day or so we noticed a difference but today she seems to be back to crying after every feed and being so hard to settle.

Could it be silent reflux? Could it be we need Neocate or Nutramigen PureAmino?

We just dont get it, she is never happy unless she is asleep and getting her to sleep (not on one of us) is a task in itself.

I am considering ringing the doctors tomorrow as we are away for the weekend and want to make sure things are right.

Would they change formula again after just one week on the new one?

My 3month old has just started on the nutriamegien milk. After 3 months of battling!! At every feed she's the same cry and screams and at 3months she's still only drinking 3 1/2 - 4od s feed. It's very stressful snd difficult to feed her. I'm hoping and praying this new milk is going to make a difference as I'm going insane -! She's also on ranatadine and gavison for reflux which does help she didn't show signs of improvment for the reflux until about 3 weeks in. I do feel you need to give it a good 10 -14 days to see if things are improving. But I would say so your best to get to the route of the problem as quickly as you can do. As now my little girl physicologically ascossicates milk as a "bad" experiance as its been such a long road to find the route of the problem, hopefully we are getting somewhere now.

Good idea to ring the doctor again.

Why are you dead set against helping her get off to sleep by cuddling her in....lots of babies need this sort of help, and if she has pain after feeding, it might be just the thing to soothe her. You can transfer her to the crib/pram after she has dropped off.

Is a return to breastfeeding an option for you? It would not be too late for this, if it was something you felt able to do.

Hope you find a solution soon.
