So yesterday morning I decided enough was enough for Oskar, after crying for hours on end me giving him infacol, not seeming to work I gave him gripe water once he turned 4 weeks old which constipated him. Poor child! I decided to get him in at the doctors. (a week before our 6 week check up, typical!) they managed to fit us in at 3pm and I took him down because by this point along with the crying he was being sick after literally every feed, if not then he was bringing up clear liquid along with green runny poo (tmi) but then that turned into constipation! (I think that was from the gripe water.)
By this point I was beginning to think he was intolerant to the baby formula as I was as a baby.. the doctor did all their usual tests and in the end thought he may have reflux. She gave me some baby gaviscon to put in his feeds which seems to be working! He hasn’t been screaming constantly and nappies are back to normal 🙂 fingers crossed it stays that way!
I also just wanted to ask other mammas out there what age they started doing tummy time with their babies 🙂 I decided to put Oskar on his tummy using his feeding pillow, he seemed quite content for about 5 minutes or so haha!
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
