Flat Head!

Im now worrying about H as he is getting a very flat head across the back I went to the gp who said it probably WON'T get better with time and he said he could refer me to a paed who will tell me the same or he could give me the name of a clinic who supply helmets. I asked his opinion on these and he said 'barbaric!' I've seen an osteopath who said it probably WILL improve as he sits up, gets older and isnt laying on his back so much. Ive been using a Goi Goi pillow for about 8 weeks now but it ...

Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER)

Hey Glittergirl, You sound like I did a few months ago, worn out with the worry of it all My dh and I also snapped and bickered like never before, after waiting so long for our ds it was such a shock to have to deal with reflux when it should have been such a happy time. Don't get me wrong, we were sooo happy to have him but we (especially me) found it so difficult to see him in so much pain and not be able to help him. I think my dh dreaded coming home from work as Harry and I would both be cry...

Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER)

We've also been on the reflux rollacoaster since H was 3 weeks old. He's 6 months now and taking 15mg omeprazole each day and is on Neocate dairy free formula. Carobel thickener in the milk has been a godsend and starting solids has helped. I weaned at 17 weeks and haven't looked back. We are about to reduce the omeprazole to 10mg/day from next week so im hoping he will still be ok. Reflux sucks, my marriage suffered so much when H was screaming ALL day long from 3-10weeks old and i think if it ...

RE: Induction - advice please!

Hello My waters broke at 38 wks but no contractions. I was put on a drip (oxytocin, I think) and induced. I went from no contractions or pains to full on painful contractions in an hour... I managed with gas and air from 11pm till 4am then had an epidural. It was very painful by then, I was really scared of having an epidural but couldnt have continued without it for another 9hrs until my ds was born at 1pm. Being induced is more painful im told, as the pains come quicker and stronger because yo...

DS sleeping for less than 7 hours out of 24

Hi Netty Sorry you are still having a tough time. With regards to the reflux my ds isnt really sick but he did have quite mucusy poo and was going after every feed! The doctor said he probably has a cows milk protein intollerance (goes hand in hand with reflux alot of the time) and put him on a hypo allergenic milk (neocate). His poo is fine now. Obviously I wasnt b/feeding (ds wouldn't latch on) unfortunately As the others said, definately time to see the gp, be firm as they tend to dismiss ref...

DS sleeping for less than 7 hours out of 24

Hi Netty, I really feel for you, its hard isnt it when they are so unhappy for much of the day. I have been a nanny for 15 years and my own long awaited son has been the most difficult baby i've ever looked after He's 5 months next week and the reflux is more or less under control with meds and we have a totally different baby to the one we brought home from hospital, but the past months have been the hardest of my life....just wanted to say that it does get better & as you become more confident...

DS sleeping for less than 7 hours out of 24

Hi Netty Could it be reflux not colic? Just a thought... Ds screamed ALL DAY and NEVER SLEPT and I was at my wits end (see my posts on silent reflux) until Jodie gave me great empathy and advice, thanks Jodie I was fobbed off by the GP and HV because ds was never sick and no-one mentioned reflux until I went privately to see a gastro-paediatrition. Ds on meds now and so much better. Really hope it's not reflux but if it is the sooner you get advice for it the better. I really feel for you, I kno...

Sleeping through the night?

Hey, i did think about putting him to bed at 8 instead of 7pm, but he's so ready for sleep at 7pm... He hasnt learnt that trick yet, but squeals so loudly and spits his dummy onto the floor with such force I hear it drop onto the carpet Hopefully he'll just stop waking of his own accord soon. Thanks

Sleeping through the night?

Thanks Bubble, it's got better but he's still stirring around 3am and then he's awake at 5am & ready to play I suppose i've just got an early riser, at least he's happy and not crying. Just so tired as dh seems to sleep through every night claiming he doesn't hear anything Jess x

Sleeping through the night?

Hi H has been great since I dropped the 11pm feed, sleeping from 7pm til around 4.45am but the last few nights he's woken around 2am and 4am chatting and is just wide awake! He doesn't cry and is really happy so he's not hungry/cold/hot etc... I don't think its his teeth, although he is very dribbly (he's 19weeks old). I get up, try to settle him, give him his dummy/rub his head all in the dark whilst hardly speaking so as to make him realise its 'sleep time' and eventually he drops off. We are ...
