I was wondering if anyone else's baby is still collicky or waking at night with gas pains or intenstinal discomfort? My little girl is almost 13 months old and she has had a history of reflux and intenstine discomfort since birth. The reflux has disappeared, but she still wakes in the night in discomfort. Sometimes the discomfort isn't very bad I can get her back to sleep within 15 mins, and other times she cries in pain, bringing her legs up, sometimes passing wind, and may not settled for up to 5 hours (no joke, a few times she has been awake for 5 hours during the night and can't settle even if I breast feed her, try lying down with her, walk her around on my shoulder etc). We are currently seeing a gastro-specialist doctor who reccommended a few reflux drugs that didnt work and now wants me to give up breast-feeding. I was just wondering if anyone else has had to deal with similar tummy issues?
