If so what did you find it was, did you goto the doctors and what helped?
I had my little girl (Now 6 weeks old) to the doctors last week due to screaming out in pain around the same time evening/night. I wasnt sure if it was colic or if she had some reflux too. She is bottle fed and does get wind up when I wind her every other oz.
She has some signs of silent reflux such as spitting up (not a lot just a little) .. sometimes she will cry when feeding and wont drink her bottle although seems as though she is starving when she sucks her dummy, she gets the hickups a lot and seems uncomfortable when laid flat (which is mainly on a night when in her moses basket she grunts, strains and fidgets)
She often does a little cough which can sometimes be followed by sick too.
Ive been putting dentinox drops in her bottles and the doctor gave us infant gaviscon although I havent put it in every feed (only the day time ones) as ive read it can make them constipated! .. speaking of constipation she only ever fills her nappy once a day and Im wondering if maybe this is causing her some discomfort too? - She is not constipated when she goes but will sometimes cry before or after going (not all of the time though)
She did stop the screaming on a night for quite a few days although its started again now and she is also quite teary and fidgety through the day.
I just dont know what is wrong with her, I just cant stop worrying and its getting me upset because whatever we do doesnt seem to help her at all! I just wish whatever is wrong with her I could have instead.
Id be very greatful for any advice or to hear your experiences.
