Hi to you all, hope you are all well? Quick post, I have been reading just never seem to find time other than late at night to post/ reply.
Ladies with bubs on formula,
*What formula are you using and Why?
* Are any of you using Nan HA Gold ?
* If so, how are your little ones going on it?
The reason I ask is that bubs is going great guns on this formula, (it's what the hospital gave me so we have continued with it) but bye crickies can she clear a room with her wind !!!!!!!!!!!! She is using her bowels every second or third day and sorry excuse the description they are dark olive green, sometimes with the grainy affect to them and Mr. Whippy ice cream/ toothpaste consistency to runny liquid that fills the nappy (but not diahorrea).
We feed and sleep beautifully through out the day. We are content and happy drinking slowly during the day and go down with out a fuss. BUT, come five pm we become aggitated and want a bottle every two / two half hourly!!!! We play with the bottle and get rather frustrated. She is usually having her last bottle of up to 180ml at 11.30pm/ midnight before she will finally settle and go to sleep.
Now I've noticed a few of you have had the same or similar complaints as such with the Nan HA Gold and have swapped formulas. What have you swapped to and are you happy with the results? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
We are 10 weeks old now and weigh 5.9kg. I rang and spoke to a nurse on the Parent helpline tonight and she said it sounds like bubs has a bit of colic re unsettled cluster feeding at night. She said her poos sounded normal and that the colour was due to the iron in the formula. She wasn't overly concerned about the 2-3 days without a poo or the stinky wind and suggested boiled water between some of her bottles at night when she was restless as she was obviously looking to suckle for comfort. The nurse didn't suggest changing formula so a bit baffled as to what to do?
Will changing formula help her? Anyone else out there with the same problem/ concerns?
Thanks in advance for any replies
