My 9 week old girl has never been happy or not for long anyway.
Got home from hospital and she would historically scream from 8pm until 6am when she would finally fall asleep on me. Only time she was happy was while on the boob. Tried infacol helped a little but didn't last long. In the end i got post natal and mastitis (sp?) so changed to formula. Started on S26 and she became a totally different baby, no screaming and started sleeping for 4-5hrs. So i thought maybe she wasn't getting enough milk and thats why she's happy now.
Then it started again (not as bad) but screaming every evening 6pm to 11pm. unable to settle at all. and every time she pooed it would be an hour of screaming and clawing at me. we thought she was constipated and changed to Nan ha gold formula. Seemed to improve a little, but then started to throw up after feeds, and wriggle,cry and arch her back while trying to burp her. She was a little bit more settled in evenings but in saying that could still have an evening of extreme screaming for hours and then when she would fart the screaming will go up a notch. We've tried everything - infants friend, colic relief, infacol nothing worked. Anyway doctor prescribed losec because she thinks she has reflux, first started on suspension but heard this doesn't work well and struggled to get her to take the 2.5ml without spitting it out or chocking on it so now i dissolve the tablets and give with half a teaspoon of peach puree. Been on tablets for nearly a week and seems like she is worse. i just don't know what to do anymore! i read these forums a 100 times a day for answers but it just makes me more confused. Is it reflux?? was it just colic?? is it a milk intolerance. sorry so long but just so confused!!!
