Help! My lil girl was born at 35 wks 3 days and had to be in the nicu and a nicu at a childrens hospital for 2 wks after birth due to lung issues which God healed up.And has been on breast milk almost from birth but has mainly been fed by bottle.Her breast milk had to be fortified (aka a scoop of formula had to be added to the brest milk) while in the childrens hospital at 1.5 wks old and again at the 1 month mark because she needed more than what my milk was givving her.She did fine with bms until she was a month old then problems started.She use to go like durring every feeding and then it went down to 2 times a day.Now she isnt going on her own at all -having to try thing to help her go.Wanting to get her to go on her own without any thing to help her especially without the aid of glisserin supositories or supositories in general.Any ideas? Anyone have anything that worked for you that might help us.She is just 8 wks old and i feel so bad for her.
We have tried apple juice,baby oatmeal in the breast milk,a drip of mollases,and a drip of karo, and then there was the dr proscribed power lax,and the supositories.So far nothing has helped her go on her own.The supositories help her go but only when used not afterward.She also has very bad gas.Before anyone says it or asks-its not what i have eaten per say because i used both the milk i just pumped and thee milk i had frozen from when i pumped it in the hospital and had eaten hospital food and there is no differance and no change.She had a ultrasound done and it come back as clear other than gas.
Can anyone help? Has anyone else who had a preemie had this issue?
