Sorry this is going to be a little long winded but just wanting to know if anyone has any suggestions on whats going on with my son.
My DS is 11 weeks and fully breastfed. He has suffered from really bad wind from basically day one. Its not constant, he just gets 'attacks' of really bad wind and then trumpets like a trooper and settles after that. In recent weeks the smell and sound has become atrocious (ie various family members look suspiciously at each other because that CANNOT be the baby!)
Last wed, it had been over 2 weeks since he pooed so I called the paed who said to give him a suppository. I was a bit loathe to do that without someone actually physically seeing him so took him to the local GP.
She checked him and his tummy was soft but still agreed that I should try the suppository given it had been over 2 weeks since his last movement. I (well actually my DH) gave him a suppository that day and it worked almost instantly. The colour was brown not yellow as it used to be & the consistency was thicker than usual put still liquid - kind of like the consistency of paint IYKWIM.
The doc also checked his weight and he had only gained 150g in the last 4 weeks (prior to this, his weight gains had been great)
She wanted to make sure that it wasn't a discrepancy between the scales she was using to the ones the paed had used at the 6 week check so I went back to see her today for a follow up... and he hasn't put any weight on at all
He is still feeding the same amount of time as he was previously (every 3-4 hrs during the day and a longer stretch at night) & he is content after feeds so she is at a bit of a loss as to what the problem is.
Thankfully she has managed to get me in to see the paed tomorrow morning so hopefully we'll get some answers soon but was just wondering if anyone had any ideas what was going on with my DS? - I feel so helpless for the little monkey :xmas_sad:
