Hoping someone can help advise me.
My baby is nearly 7 weeks old and has been very upset lately. The HV recommended infacol, but after using it every feed for a day, he had his worst crying spell ever and now Im at a loss and considering a trip to the gp. It's so hard to get an appointment though so just wanted to get opinions from other mums first. Here are his symptoms:
mostly grizzly when not asleep, seems uncomfortable.
Cries and pulls off the boob when feeding, it can take ages to get though a feed as I never know if he's finished. I keep burping him but burps rarely come up.
Cries relentlessly sometimes with no way to stop him last night he cried till he was exhausted and finally he fed himself to sleep. He then slept for 3 and a half hours, but squirmed in his sleep a lot. He cried at the next feed as well. He ended up falling asleep sitting up and then i laid him down and he slept for 2 hours.
Crying spells are worse in evening but can occur at any time of day
Foams at mouth a bit sometimes
Farts a LOT. Cries when he's farting which happens a lot during feeding.
Feeds nearly every hour during the day for short feeds and pulls off. There is usually 1 or 2 feeds a day where is he ok. Usually the last feed before he goes to sleep at night is calmer.
Happiest when in bouncy chair but sometimes nothing works
Do you think this could be silent reflux or does it sound like normal colicky behaviour? He's ebf.
