Just reaching our for some support. My 7 week old daughter seems to have bad bad gas at night. She doesnt cry but complains all night long. I tried mylicon and it hasnt done a thing. I will try gripe water later tonight as I have to go out and buy it. The thing is she really doesnt complain during the day and just passes her bubbles.
I was thinking maybe its a foremilk thing at night. That is where you gals come in. During the day, she feeds for at least 15 minutes, never less and at least every two hours if not everyhour or so, but usually more and when my boob because so soft and she still wants more I switch. But at night, she eats rather quick and passes out and so do I. Could she only be getting the foremilk. Last night was a bad one. She woke up every two hours to eat and complained the entire time. She was complaining most of the time in her sleep. Her eyes were closed.
What can I do to fix it. It seems to be getting worse than better. I feel so bad for her.
Also, her poops were every diaper up until one week ago and now she is pooping every other day and when she poops its still that yellow color, but it no longer looks like mustard with seeds in it, it looks like the consistency of whip cream.
Could the pain be getting worse b.c she is pooping less now?
Also, she is still cluster feeding in the evening. She is on the boob for hours so I know she is getting the hindmilk right before bed.
She came home weighing 8lbs 6 ounces and as of a week ago she weighed 11lbs and 6 ounces so she is gaining. She turned 7 weeks yesterday.
I am feeding on demand. And on Mon-Thurs she gets one bottle of expressed milk b.c I am in school. She never had forrmula.
I am not a diary eater. I may put a little milk in my coffee but thats all. I take 1200 calcium pills per my doctor.
