My son Ethan is 5 weeks & 3 days old.
We had an absolute nightmare day with him yesterday, he just cried on & off all day with typical colic symptoms. The one thing worrying me the most though is he isn't feeding well, he will latch on & suck for a minute & then pull off screaming That happened all day even after a bath where he fed for 2 minutes & then crashed out until 10 last night.
I tried to feed him at 10 & surprise he was back to feeding okay but didn't take much of a long feed..only 5/10 minutes compared to the 20/30 minute normal feed & he soon fell back to sleep so we all went to bed. Then instead of waking me up at 1am for his usual feed he slept right through until 4am which is so unlike him. I changed his nappy before feeding him & it was bone dry but he had done a poo (TMI)
Another short feed and back to sleep until 6.30 where he woke while we were getting up & was sick all down his babygrow from his 4am feed - This again is not like him.
I changed his nappy at 7 and it was wet thankfully & again he took a short feed.
Then ever since then he has been fussing at feeds again, pulls off the breast constantly and will only take 5 minutes max.
Why do you think this could be? Do you think it is wind/colic and maybe something I have eaten. I can't really think of anything I have eaten that would affect him apart from lots of chocolate over easter & then the night before last I had a sweet chilli pizza but it wasn't overly spicy but did have peppers on it??
Help? Surely he must be hungry after not feeding properly for over 24 hours now. xx
