Hoping someone might be able to help...
My DS has never slept particularly well. When we hit 10 weeks he slept for 5 hours one night out of the blue. This continued for two more nights and I thought we were finally getting somewhere. Since then his sleeping has gotten worse, with me getting up every 2 hours or more overnight. He sleeps about three times during the day but only for 30-45 minutes. An hour sleep in the day happens occasionally but is rare.
Every time I've gotten up to him in the last 2 weeks at night has been due to gas. As soon as it passes he's fine and feeds straight back to sleep. During the day he'll often go down to sleep but pop his eyes open after 10 minutes. When I pick him up he always needs to burp.
Whilst the solution sounds like burping him more I don't know that this is possible, or the answer. He is burped regularly throughout all feeds, and I didn't burp differently on the nights he slept through v the nights he didn't.
In desperation 2 days ago I cut out eggs, fish and nuts to see if that was affecting him. (I'm already gluten free as I'm a coeliac). Last night he slept for 8 hours!
I've seen the gp today (appt was already booked) and they have no suggestions. I've called the ABA and they have no suggestions. Both think it would be rare for what I'm eating to affect him but I am seriously desperate. I don't have an oversupply according to the ABA counsellor.
Does anyone have any ideas, or info on food intolerances in fully bf babies?
I need help and need to know where to go next.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for any typos - I'm on the iPhone.
