Can't feed 4 hrly with refluxer...how to fit the bottles in?
« on: February 20, 2013, 06:06:41 am »
I can't feed Thomas too close to naps or BT (sometiems before a nap but usually a mess)
We tried 30 mins before BT - after bath last night and it was a disaster. He spills and wakes, refluxes etc.

So how do I fit the bottles in? He can go 4 hrs, and will take 6-7 oz now. He will take 5/6 if I offer earlier than that.

We get to the end of the day and end up getting closer feeds ::)

What ends up happening is I feed when he stirs/wakes in the early evening as a NF ie 8pm. Hs a bit rubbish early evening with his sleep post bt. we are working on this.

Any ideas ???

What does his whole day look like at the moment?

How is he after the nightfeeds - do they not make him worse like the bedtime feed?

I had a few 4 hrly days when he had a 6am NF
So 6 up at 7, 10 (or later and after nap), 2, 5.30/6 (after CN before bath)
But it's easy usually ie 7, 11, 3, then 5.30 because often BT is 6.30

He sometimes STTN till 6 but this as been exhaustion I think. On these nights sometimes I feed him because he's stirring so much. - hence operation swaddle wean tonight.

Otherwise 1-2 NF which usually he ay not need but without a full BT bottle I'm not sure YK?

Because of pressure from pead and dr (no more help till we try it) we are also going to start rice cerial ::)

Oh and no, usually he's so sleepy on feeding in the night he's fine, though since 4 mths he's sake for the secs NF if he has one (or when it's after 3am) probably because he's used to being rocked.
