Looking for some advice and perhaps some feedback to know I'm not alone!
My 16 week baby boy has had problems with wind since he was born, he has colic from 3 1/2 weeks old. He is a very hungry baby, so early on we changed him from Aptamil 1 to Hungry baby milk which seemed to have settled him for a good few weeks. Since he had colic, although he has now grown out of this, thank God! we use the Dr Browns bottles, tried infacol for a while which helped, then he seemed to have more discomfort so changed back to aptamil 1 milk and introduced Colief to prevent the discomfort.
This seemed to work, but because he is nearly 4 months I've tried to reduce his intake i.e. not putting it in every bottle but things seem to have got worse. He's never really slept through, although when we started using the colief we saw big improvements and only waking for 1 feed at night. He's now become restless again at night, lots of trumps too...
The Dr's are really unhelpful. I'm just worried if I should still keep him on Colief as the leaftlet indicates use up to 4 months? It's so tiring and I just want him to be better...
He brings his wind up well during the day and does not appear to be in discomfort during the day so much, it's mainly at night.
Should I be thinking of changing him to comfort or organic milk? Should I increase the Colief again?
Any help would be great
