Hoping someone can help or relate.
My babh was born 7 weeks ago via forceps delivery after quite along birth. I breast fed for 5 days then changed to bottle.
Initally she fed really well and was manging 90ml-120ml first few weeks.
Then started with silent reflux symptoms so saw gp and got anti reflux meds. For last 3-4 weeks her feeding has reduced to 60-90 and health visitor keeps saying this isnt wnough for her. She weighed 8.3lbs at birth and last week was 9.12lbs (although had big hard poo after).
Gp wasnt too concerned about her intake and just said to monitor it and go back today with diary of feeds and weight.
She doesnt seem to wake for feeds so i just offer it her 3 hourly but now anything more than 60mls is hard work she will either fall asleep, scream or just refuse and not suck at all.
Get advice and support with infant feeding from other users here.
