my son also like that, this goes on till he was about 4-5 mths.
This is a discussion on acid reflux within the Newborn Baby and Infant Care (up to 12 months old) forum, part of the Growing Up & Parenting category; Hi mummies, i think my 9 weeks old baby has acid reflux but not totally sure.. need yr feedback here... ...
i think my 9 weeks old baby has acid reflux but not totally sure.. need yr feedback here...
my baby has been fussy and will stick out his tongue (like lizard) sometime, arch his back n keep crying.. i carry him m comfort him but after a while he agitate. sometime he will make some noise n his face like in uncomfortable/ pain n like want to poo n fart, he finally did fart but didnt really poo.. but he will poo like a couple of hours laterbut when i look at his poo, it's golden colour n watery so i dont think he is consipated..
n also few hours after feed, sometime, he will regurgitate some thick bean curd amount out n then burp but not those big burp kind.. it seems to me like when i had heartburn during my pregnancy kind of small burp n those 'sour taste' look..
however, he seems ok sometime but out of a sudden he will scream n then get irritated n cry.. thought he was hungry but didnt want to latch on n then try to make him sleep but difficult...
i know tht the digestive system is not fully 'function' yet now but do i just wait for this regurgitation to get better by itself or is this something need to be retreated or serious?
did any mummies encounter this? any advise?
Many many thx...
my son also like that, this goes on till he was about 4-5 mths.
Thx ALisa - by the way do you give any medication to yr baby or just let it be n will 'recover' when baby gets older?
my baby used to split out milk alot at the beginning n it's better.. n now with this bean curd thing out fm his mouth, suppose it will get better as he grows..
Hi Lana, your baby seemed to have colic from your description. They will generally arch their backs, grunt n fuss when they have wind. You may want to give him some gripe water n always burp him after each feed. Also, young babies tend to spit up milk from time to time so if he doesn't seem uncomfortable after spitting, that's fine. If he vomits a lot, you may want to decrease his milk intake. My son has bad gas n reflux so this is from my experience.
My baby gal also like that. she's a week old. Can we give gripe water at such a young age?
If the methods suggested above does not improved your baby's condition, you might want to consider this - reflux baby & enfalac AR
hi pixie - thx for the post, my baby is fully latch on bf n would like to introduce fm as later as possible, but guess if this countinue might have to do it...
i've been massaging my baby, burping him and holding him upright n his 'bean curd' split up has slightly reduce.. hope his regui. will resolve with time...
hi missgale - he doesnt seem uncomfortablr after the split up but i know tht he's, maybe in pain/ uncomfortable as lots of time he arch his back n start crying n i can hear tht his stomach make a kind of 'grooo groo'noise, like when we r hungry kind of sound..
feel uncomfortable for him :/
only grape water then kept massaging him and push his legs to his stomach or move in a cycle motion help my son to pass the gas. my son is those very ery difficult to burp baby... we can try for 10-15 mins and he dont burp.
sigh, my baby is like this too. she has projectile vomitted twice, but I think that's our fault for not burping her enougha need feeding her so much. but she does spit up, even after extensive burping. but she's growing.. and eating.. and pooping, so she is taking in enough! I just hope she outgrows it soon.
those parents with babies like this: at what age do they start to spit up less? I read that it peaks at 4 months! that's madness
the split up will outgrow evetually, not sure how old is yr baby but be a little more patience n will get better
i've similiar pb with my baby too. when i posted this thread he was like 2 months old, now coming to his 3rd months, i can see a LOT of diff.. he split very little or not anymore... it was true with his acid reflex, i'm quite fed up at times cos need to change clothes every time n it sink!
he is getting better n better.. sometime i dont even burp him now, he just do it himself once i hold him up if you r bf, dont think you need to burp everytime...
about the 4th month peak, not sure yet but i hope not otherwise i will go crazy to hving keep changing his clothes :s but i dont think so as their digistive system will get better as they get older...
ohh that's very heartening my baby is not yet 1 month old, but as a brand new shiny newborn she wasn't that bad. it started at around 2 weeks and got worse so far.. I'm going on a holiday with her when she's 3 months + so I hope she doesn't spit up as much then! and it's just really time consuming to keep burping her and making sure she keeps the breast milk down (yes she's 100% bf - does that help spitting up?). and yes even I smell of rancid milk!
yah, sometime it takes me about 10 to 15 mins to burp my baby n if he dont burp after 15 mins, i just let it go n hold him upright for another 15 mins ju z to make sure be dont throw out straight away ..
dont thnk so, bf milk digest faster than fm.. the split up is b'cos their esophagus muscle is still not yet 'strong' enough to hold down the milk... slowly but surely it will get better
Sorry for a long post.
My 2 month old dear daughter seems to suffer from silent reflux. Since she was gaining weight at her 1st month check up, doc told to ignore and wait till 3 months to let it go away. After dealing with gas issues, we changed her to Similac Total Comfort Lactose free plus Himalaya Herbals Bonnisan for gas and she is much better with regards to gas. But she still cries the WHOLE day on and off till about 12 am at night and cannot sleep when put down. Even on an incline she keeps swallowing like she is getting some reflux (she does not spit up). The crying starts after a feed even after she is full and will not take the bottle anymore. She sleeps for not more than 2 hours during day and 4-5 hours at night. Rest of the time she is awake and cranky crying inconsolably most of the time.
Can anyone recommend a good doctor who can address reflux issues for a formula fed baby? Also is it advisable to mix Enfalac AR with Similac Total comfort to prevent constipation?
Plz help. We have been sleepless for weeks now and exhausted from all the crying. I am on the verge of slipping back into postnatal blues.
