Born with her bowel on the outside of her body

Maree, my daughter was born only 1.9 kgs and with her bowel on the outside of her body she has spent 4 weeks of her life in hospital and is 13 weeks old now. She wakes up 4- 6 times a night please help me to try to help her sleep. She is bottle fed and the doctors have told us to use S26 Gold so it is easier on her tummy. Please help me. what can I do?

Maree...
Answer: Hi, It makes it really hard to implement any settle program when baby has been so ill. I would only suggest you speak to your doctor about any settling program. Are you feeding each time she wakes or comforting back to sleep. Give me a bit more information about how you settle her now and what you are doing to get her back to sleep. Cheers, Maree
