Infant Gaviscon left LO with chronic straining, 7 hours in the night so he couldnt sleep for the past 3 nights and we have been up with him from 12.30 it is now 7am and still nothing in his nappy, he looks asleep but is making loud straining noises and thrashing about poor thing. Its day 2 of giving him lactolose, do you think it will pass soon? His last poop was just soft so I was hoping he'd be okay by now! (Even before the IG he would strain quite a bit but nothing like this)! Last night was scary, the straining was cauing the reflex and he sounded like he was choking, he wasnt crying or anything and was too tired to take much feed which isnt like him at all! I heard Ranitidine has 2 side effects, gas and constipation, I havent heard anyone on this board mention it though? Its only day 2 of it anyway, I know I need to give it 2 weeks.
