I need some advice please! My daughter has had one thing after another since birth. She was taken by c-section 2 weeks early...then spent the first 8 days of her life in TCH for apnea spells. She only had 1 after she got home, and is doing much better with that situation.... But, since all of that...she has had a heck of a time with formula. I have changed it from the Similac Adavanced to the Similac Sensitive to the Enfamil Nutramigen then to the Similac Soy...because it seemed she had a milk allergy. But now the Soy is constipating her super badly and she has had to have 4 laxative suppositories this week....and I feel that is WAY to many for her to need at this age.
My pediatrician suggested that I give her 2 oz of the Gerber Apple/Prune a day deluted with an oz of water...but that doesn't help all that does is create a huge gas bubble. She is on the Mylicon drops and the Gripe Water. I have tried the dark Karo syrup...I am all out of ideas. Anyone with any advice? It would be GREATLY appreciated :)
Also...she is not wanting to sleep at night. She sleeps at night like a newborn. She'll wake up every hour to every hour and a half...
My mother was thinking she does that when she is hurting with gas because she has a couple of good nights where she'll sleep between 4-5 hours.
