With DD1, I had OALD/OS and she had reflux and would spit up a lot.
DD2 is almost 5wks and I'm having OALD, again Just like DD1, DD2 is a guzzler and big spitter upper and has (we think) reflux.
She's been fussy, will arch her back, and has avocado green poops (which started around the time I really started feeling my letdowns). She hardly burps, if I try it just causes her to spit up.
I cannot put her down for more than 5min without her wanting to be held. If I wear her in the sling she is all good, not a peep out of her The good thing is that from about 1a-8a she'll give me two 3-4hr stretches of sleep...unless the milk coming up wakes her up!
-I've already tried changing my diet and still no change in her poops. Plus, even when my diet was unchanged she WAS having mustard yellow poops. The green poops started about 3wks ago.
-Her bassinet is at an incline & I feed her at a slight incline and let her just chill there until she wakes up.
-I blockfeed because of my OS, but maybe I'm doing too much or not enough
-I do catch my letdowns into a towel.
-I know she's getting enough milk because her wet/dirty diapers are plenty.
-We've given her the Mylicon drops=no change, and Colic Calm=helps a little, we think.
So what I'm wondering is, the fussiness, the spit up, the arching of the back, the green poops are pointing towards milk imbalance, right? Or reflux?
I swore I wouldn't forget this important stuff after DD1
