    So Amelia has silent reflux, which has been more or less under control recently :happydance:

    Anyway, the past few days it has been playing up - she has been getting pains whilst feeding and for a while after feeding - couldn't figure out why it would 'come back'.....then i realised the flare up coincided with me moving her from slow flow to medium medium flow teats - so i wondered if her tummy was filling too quickly and aggrivating the reflux...

    Well that was the prob as for the past 3 bottles i have given her slow flow again and no pains at all.....but, she is getting so frustrated with them, it took her 50 mins to eat 4oz! And that was with me perservering - she was getting 'bored' after just 2 oz - thing is that just isn't enough milk (normally takes 5 - 6) and i reckon that is why she has started to wake more in the night - she's not getting enough during the day :dohh:

    What can i do??? There is no inbetween - :dohh:

    Any ideas?
