Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?
Understood. The nice thing about double-cream milk is that even if you can't get baby to eat much, whatever she does eat will have more calories than her average bottle.
Your suggestion of double-cream breastmilk may help with weight gain but the problem is getting it down her most the time.
Not daft. It's a crafty thing that some people get into... Basically, you want to add some yogurt with live cultures in it to expressed milk and then maintain the temperature for a certain time period. This link (and many others) explain how to make yogurt: http://www.granny-miller.com/how-to-...ck-pot-yogurt/
Yoghurt may work, probably a daft question but how do I do that?
The thing is, if you're only a bottle or two ahead of your baby's intake, making yogurt is probably not how you want to be spending your time. And you probably don't have enough excess to waste on a yogurt-making adventure. The yogurt idea works best for moms whose freezers are spilling over with expressed milk!
This might be a long shot, but have you tried taking cow's milk out of your diet? It's not like your baby is giving you tons of allergy symptoms- but my understanding is that reflux can be worsened by an allergy or intolerance to the proteins in cow's milk. And if you're using a cow's milk-based formula, an allergy/intolerance might explain why baby is so miserable after a formula top-up.
