Thread: At wits end... Wont stop screaming

    homeopathic chammomila is really good for calming/soothing - you could try giving it to her (tiny pillule that goes under the tounge and dissolvles or there is a spray option from health food stores) as far as i am aware it is safe to give in new tiny bubs - but check it out.
    i highly recommend taking bub to a chiro thats specialises in bub care - i took my dd who had breathing and a 4mth cold (literally 4 mth) and it was gone in three treatments. and i know others that have taken for sleep and settling issues - could be something paining her when she is in the sleep position or a problem with wind that can be easily remedied. (if you are in Melbourne i can give you the details)
    Good Luck, it can be so challenging when your at wits end and only want best for bub.

    I second AJP's recommendation, I saw Braden with my first DS. They also have a practice in Boronia and I've seen Paul C for DS2, he is WONDERFUL. Both bubs became very settled after a visit with them.

    Me too AJP! Braden is fantastic isn't he? Paul is too, DS2 went from a bad day sleeper to a great day sleeper after our first visit with him. I wanted to go back and hug him!

    So infacol and massage haven't helpped...

    Schmickers... She eats, plays ans sleeps perfect during the day, she is only up for an hour to an hour and a half at the most... takes a little to settle, but just 'normal' baby settling... it hits 7-8pm and it's on for young and old, and we do the exact same thing with her.... ETA: She has been doing this since 2 days old, so I am guessing not to do with a growth spurt.

    Have a M&CHN appt this morning, and if I cant get an answer from her, I will take her to the children's...

    Will also look into the paed chiro... thanks!

    ETA: We are FF as she was feeding on the boob for 3 hours straight and come off for an hour and go again for 3... I couldn't do anything for DD1 so the boob got the boot!

    Mel, I use donnalix to help with the wind pains (helps them bring it up, and has something to lessen the pains) and if u suspect refulx, gaviscon should help (both are OTC meds so no script needed!). I'm suspecting my man get's it at times. I have had exact same problems. But it's settling a bit as he's learning how to push out the wind etc. But he still arches his back when on boob sometimes and has a vomit 2-3hrs after a feed sometimes. But My man is handling it without anything. We manage to get it up and he feels better so...
    some things u can try are cycling the legs (lay bub on back and make motions like he/she is riding a bike) helps them move it thru, warm DEEP baths so they can kick legs and move wind thru, pressure on tummy while rubbing the back helps....
    Just letting u know it does get better and it shouldn't take too long hon. The main problem is usually that they don't know how to burp it up and fluff it out the other end so they end up in pain. Once they learn that, it all settles a fair bit. There may still be bad times, but they are less regular. Hope some of my suggestions help.

    It does get better I promise! My MCHN told me that the Infacol can take up to 24 hours to work if you give it with every feed so it may be worth persevering just in case.

    I wonder if she is overtired by the evening? Just a thought, I'm no expert! Up to an hour and a half of wake time during the day is a lot for a little bub. I realised this with my DS when he was your bub's age and I put him to bed after 45-60 minutes of wake time and he was much happier. Your bub may be different of course!

    Hope you find a solution soon

    Thanks again guys...

    MCHN gave some goo dsuggestions and was so understanding... We have switched formula to lactose free, as it can help with colic... we are using infacol at every feed not just the night... and having mylanta twice a day. We will see how that goes over the next few days, as well as trying to keep her awake for witching hour earlier, so she might settle better at night.

    I also have an appt with paed chiro next Thurs, couldn't get into the ones you guys said, but same clinic at Boronia, fingers crossed...

    wish me luck!

    How are things going today Mel? That is awesome that you are going to the chiro! Will you be seeing Adam? My sister takes her DD to him and she raves about him!

    I really hope it all goes well for you

    Trish - I noticed in this post you talk about not keeping bubs up for too long - does that include the time to breast-feed bubs?

    Hi MelbourneGirl, yep that includes feed time. I doesn't seem like you get a lot of wake time in the first weeks!

    If you are b/f, try expressing off the breast milk. I know that affected Aidens reflux.

    Or, like the others have suggested go with the Brauers, i think its great, and once i started using that, i stopped with teh infants friend.

    Yeah Trish we are seeing Adam... Oh I am glad that you know of him, I was a bit worried that he wasn't one of the recommended guys you were talking about but he was the first available, so I took it!

    We are going MUCH better I think keeping Tahli up between 4 and 8pm feeds and infacol is working... She has been great the last 2 nights so fingers crossed that it keeps up... I will still take her to Adam as we may be able to cancel out the infacol...

    Thanks for the support and advice!
