My 7 week old has started to sleep alittle better (we manage one 3 to 4 hour stretch)but she wakes us up every night groaning/straining and crying but when i go to her she seems to still be asleep and then stops making the noises and sleeps soundly for another 10mins or so then does the same again but seems to be doing it in her sleep?she also kicks her legs and gets her covers off when doing this.she is breastfed but has 4oz of formula at 11pm. im wondering if its the formula maybe making her constipated as she doesnt go for a poo in the night but often has a explosive one in the morning. or is she just dreaming?
It does sound a bit like her tummy is hurting if she's bringing her legs up and groaning.
I think at that age Adrian used to poo after every feed... i think pretty much every nappy was dirty and wet, but he is entirely breast fed.
Do you do rub her tummy? And try lifting and lowering her legs to get the gas out?
I've just remembered that Adrian went through a phase of doing this (groaning and wriggling) at 5am and i think it was usually if i hadn't managed to burp him after his previous feed.
My little girl groans in her sleep when shes waking up now she is crying alot i think she has gas ive given her gas drops but it gives her one watery poop and then nothing after so off to the doc we go i dont wanna keep giving it to her if its not helping her out!!
my 3 week old is doing this, she is formula fed and only poos once a day, runny but she just doesnt like it, apparently its quite common for babies to not like going for a poo and getting distressed, on occasion i have woke to her cryin in her sleep for her to stop and first thing in the morning boom she releases the mother of all poos lol.
