everything has been fine so far, we have even doing much better with the side-preference (i posted earlier about my DS preferring to nurse from right breast).
but for about a week now we've been struggling with spit-ups and crying during nighttime. DS is now 7 weeks old and otherwise a healthy baby. but now the spitting up is really seeming to bother him. so far it was just some milk that came out while burping, mostly during daytime, he slept so well at night, waking only to nurse.
now it's curdled (which i know is also ok) and mixed with mucus. but what's bothering me, is that he's waking now during the night, obviously not feeling well, grunting. then he starts crying, then i have to rock him until he burps and spits up this mucusy-curdly milk. and that happens several times.
so what is it? reflux? dairy intolerance? i suspect the latter, because he also has some kind of rash in his face, ears and shoulders. at first i assumed it was baby acne, but now with the spitup symptoms i am wondering if it is something else.
sure, babies are fussy at night but so far everything was so well. so maybe it is not just fussiness but something medical? i haven't consulted our gp yet, and i don't believe it will be much help also, other than suggestions to FF instead. they're so oldschool and i can't switch also, as we live in a small town with no options :S so i rather ask here.
