Help! Teatime Colic?!?!?
« on: February 25, 2016, 09:02:58 am »
My mum calls it teatime colic and her mum did before apparently...but whatever it is, my lo is suffering with it on a daily occurrence!!! My HV hasn't been able to help and I am just wondering if anyone's LO suffers too?!?!?!?

Mine didn't but had reflux, a friend who has recently had a baby is dealing with screaming from about 6pm to sleep time every night. She's tried all sorts, including colief but it does seem to be improving gradually. Her LO is 10 weeks now, they do say colic passes around the 12 week mark.

How is feeding going generally? Which formula are you using?

Hi Laura,
I'm using Aptamil. It's literally the same every night! She's 8 weeks this week and some feeds are good and some are bad (I'm not sure if it's colic or reflux tbh) .  She takes between 2-4 oz but when she has an episode I struggle to get anything in her-she literally cries herself to sleep for her teatime nap!!!

What's her daytime sleep like - could she just be OT by tea time plus colicky?

That's a good point actually...her naps have just completely gone out of the window because she's started the '45 minute' nap cycle so yes, this could contribute...I suppose it'll pass  :o
