My EBF baby girl is 8 weeks old and I'm really puzzled and worried because of her being so unsettled. (I have successfully breastfed my son for a year and a half - he is now almost 4, and he was a difficult baby having 100% nose obstruction due to adenoids, now removed, and cow's milk protein allergy - now gone too).
We live in UK and at her 8 week check the GP seemed worried about her dropping from the 50th (on which she was born) to the 25th percentile, however in my opinion she seems to follow slowly the latter .Now she weighs 4.5 kg.
My problem with her is that her feeds are very short - under 10 min - she seems to stop because she feels uncomfortable, and after she eats she is really unsettled, it is difficult for her to burp...if she tries to feed again after stopping she usually throws up everything and also throws up after comfort feeding (she rarely seeks for comfort at the breast ( ). I have to hold her upright a lot after eating, i manage like this to have throwing up episodes only once a day, or every two - three days but sometimes it happens three times a day. She has a lot of wet nappies, explosive poos - their color is sometimes very green and now changed from bright yellow to a dirty-brownish yellow. I could say her latch is not perfect as she seems to take only the tip of the nipple but if i try a 'deeper' latch she gags and throws up...she gags pretty easily.In her 3rd to 6th week she had very very bad 'colic' pain every evening/night...she is better now but still more unsettled in the evening.(My son had horrendous 'colic' up to 3 months but he had excellent weight gain...)
So what could be wrong? What could I do to make her feel better? I thought i was Mrs.'know it all' after breasfeeding my son for longer-than-average......obviously, i'm not...so...HELP!
