Could you post??

My daughter is 10 weeks old and is drinking 2oz still sometime has around 4 every now and again, but sometimes doesn’t go the full 3 hours it sometimes 2hours but she might drink abit more or just have 1oz so it feels like we are over feeding her.. she’s very sicky also she could throw up the whole bottle! I did mention to the doctor and he said she has reflux so I asked what I could do to help but he told me too ‘wait till she grows up’ and sent me on my way.. anyone had anything similar.. I feel lost🙈🤔😞

6lb 8oz at birth
10lb. Now

  • I would want to see another doctor! They don’t really care if they are gaining weight! But clearly there is an issue. Acid reflux they say needs medication to reduce acid to stop irritation of the oesophagus. My little boy was the same. We ended up dairy free as all same symptoms to his sister who was also and once changed he didn’t throw up as much and started drinking alot more too x

  • My daughter had this born at 6lb4 now 10lb at 15 weeks. I had to put her on reflux milk but she went longer for feeds and would only have three bottles in 26 hours. I have changed her back to from birth milk with gaviscon from the doctor and she now keeps her feeds down. Hope you find something that works for you x

  • I would try infacol it will help with any reflux, trapped wind etc which may be causing her to bring it back up. Also that’s a small amount for 10 weeks maybe up it slightly if baby isn’t lasting x
