For me it's the BF'ing viscous cycle. You need to eat a bit more and healthy when BF'ing but the fact your constantly feeding stops you from eating or drinking as much as you'd like. Three nights out of six when DH is at work our toddler is getting pretty rushed meals too.

Do you use infacol or anything like that? I didn't use it at every feed but once before his night feed seemed to help his gas all night. Although CJ's reflux seems to be improving now, which is great because it also means the nappy wraps are not making him uncomfortable so we are using them full time now.

Markus is defo going through the 3 month growth spurt pretty bad During the day he wants to eat about every hour and during the night every 2 hours. He's also pretty grumpy and so fussy when he's on the boob, but apparently it's all normal. Cheeky monkey. Hope it passes soon as after 4 nights of very bad sleep I'm broken and so tired!

yes omi its exactly like that. between feeds, naps and holding & snuggling sometimes eating and drinking gets pushed aside :S

I haven't used the drops but i.think that's a great idea and I'll pick some up and try it out.

omg pebbie you must be so tired & having another to watch over too. You girls are stronger than me.

Callas baptism and party is tomorrow. 50 guests at the house... what was I thinking? haha!! i'm freaking exhausted but it should be a nice time

Hope you get some better sleep soon too.

Good luck with the baptism Babyface.

I have a outpatient appointment at the hospital tomorrow with the urology department and am presuming I'll get discharged.

Babyface, Louis is th same with gas pain at night I think they are just too tired to help it out. We found a great method for helping the gas out. Pop them on you knee with their back against your tummy and rotate. As they move in circles with you it moves the gut round and gently helps the bubbles out. It works everytime with Lou. Small warning, it can sometimes come with a prize so you might want to drape a muslin over your knees. Hope it helps.

yes zfbaby she usually falls asleep and just won't burp (then of course wakes when I lay her down lol)
thank you for the tip!! but what do I rotate? i'm having a hard time picturing

omi, how did the appt go?

the baptism and party went great!! Calla slept through the entire ceremony unfortunately, I bought exactly two times too much food though. But this was my first time hosting a big party so I gutted i'm learning. Too bad you ladies don't live close I'd have you over for bbq, salads, cakes, etc! haha

Good luck with the appointment today! Hope you get discharged.

Zfbaby, I tried this method for burping with Markus as he sometimes gets bad gas pains around 5pm and he burped and burped and burped. Brilliant and thanks for the tip!
Babyface, just sit Calla on your lap with her back against your tummy. You then start to move in circles with your upper body so Calla will do the same with her upper body. And that should do the trick

Thanks, the appointment went well. I didn't get discharged but I don't have to go back for another 6 months now. I was told to rest again but I feel lazy enough as it is.

Glad the baptism went well babyface.

Hey all! Anyone's baby making whining/moaning noises? He seems to do it when tired (??) but this is totally new sound he's started making over the past few days. Sounds like babbling but slower and lower and more of it if that makes sense.
