Okay, so my baby was fine (as fine as he could be 3.1 weeks preemie due to weight problems), right until he came home after 9 days in hospital (not feeding properly ect.). I dropped dramatically in milk when he got home, he also became a very fussy baby. It came to the point I had to express feed, then eventually I had to mix feed until the day I couldn’t anymore and decided that formula was what was best. In the mean time, we discovered there was silent reflux (diagnosed only by midwives) then it turned into a couple of projectile vomits!
We have tried almost everything, different positioning, holding him differently, burping, not burping, thickener, 10 different formula’s, thickener (which didn’t work, seemed to have a reaction and had to squeeze formula out!) . I haven’t been to see the doctor yet as we’re due to get his needles and we really want to do it in the morning so we have a full day to keep an eye on him if any reaction occurs.
But our last option before medication is gaviscon, but I was wondering if anyone found anything else that would help? Like feeding food? Thank you!
