    Alex, your definately not doing anything wrong...
    Babies are all different & unfortunately dont come with directions, so it is all a learning curve & trial & error with alot of things...
    It could be colic, it could be reflux???

    Perhaps go see or call the 24hour MCHN hotline & explain what is happening..

    Babies also have periods of unsettledness!

    You are doing a marvellous job, it takes time to learn our babies cues etc...

    Best of luck...

    Yeap I agree with Tracey totally Alex. I have a fussy feeder who the paed thought had silent reflux. She has always been a small eater, I reckon she'd eat maybe not even half that Tracey's bub eats and she's older than her! They just each do what they want. How old is your DD? Is she putting on weight? You are doing a fantastic job, don't worry (coming from the mother of all worriers!)

    200 grams a week is fine, and at the high end of average, so it sounds like she's getting enough.

    If you're worried it might be a health issue though, talk to your health nurse about it, she should have a good idea of whether its something to get further adive about.

    Alex, wow that's a great weight gain. It really sounds like you are doing a great job. But yeah, if you are concerned about colic or reflux, talk to your MCHN or gp.

    My daughter who was 4 weeks early had a similar problem, the SCN girls told me that one day all would finally settle down and it did. As long as your little girl is happy and putting on weight you are doing a magnificent job. The MCHN line is wonderful if you are worried give them a call.
