2 weeks old baby....with frequest spit up milkhi
my baby girl is 2 weeks old. she was born normal and at full term. since the day she is born, she has started spitting up milk ( extensively on breast milk).
As the time passes, her spitting up increases. went to the doctor. and according to Dr. suggestions, started giving her smaller & frequent feed. KeEpping her upright after every feed. Also giving her burp in between the feed and after feed. But all these measures are not effective. her condition is getting worse.
she is very cranky. make curve of her spine while feeding. and it's difficult for her to feed properly. she has started loosing appetite. extremely gassy after the feed or during the feed. may be she cried a lot while feeding and engulf air. hiccups very very frequent. not able to lay down supine. spitting up after every feed. even if she has breast fed for a minute or so. some times, she spits very large amount that is currdy. or some times the whole amount of plain milk. her sleep is also very much disturbed. wakes up after 20-30 min.
m very upset need help as soon as possible.
A worried mummy

This thread continues beneath the following ad.
Give her 2 pills of AETHUSA CYN.30c in the morning before her first feed & 2 pills in the night when putting her to bed. for three days & watch the improvement.
I am sure you must not be giving her drinking water. If so please start giving some water in between the feeds. The water should be filtered & boiled at least for 5 minutes & then feed it after cooling down. In case if she refuses add a little sugar to it.Her Hiccups & gas will also improve.
daktersaab on 2017-03-07thanks for reply. I will give that med.to my baby n will get back to you.
I want to know One more thing. You said to give water to baby. I assumed that water is not necessary as she is on breastfeeding. second, she is very young. third, we live in North Europe.and it's extremely cold here. do u think she still needs water?if so then why? want to know reason.
navedsha on 2017-03-08does this med. relieve gas. as well?
navedsha on 2017-03-08This thread continues beneath the following ad.Yes I understand your problem. But let me ask you when you are thirsty does any of other liquid satisfy your thirst other than water?
These days all docs insist for giving no water at all but when the little one go thirsty don't you think it would bring comfort to it.
I do not know what others feel about it but in my opinion the age old tradition of giving water is equally important today also and at times I refuse to give treatment when patient insist on not giving water to kids.
This way we are not only taking the risk of dehydration but also the little one become uncomfortable due to thirst. If you ask the elders at your home I am sure they will say that they made you also to drink water when you were little one.
Anyway, the choice is yours.
Yes this med will work for gas as well.

it sounds wise. yes my mother told me, she gave me water when I was at this age.
I started giving her water in between the feed. a teaspoon after every feed.
I have ordered aethusia med. as it is not available in my country. so I hv to order it online. may be I will get it until Monday.
my daughter was spitting up milk before ....like spilling from mouth. but now for last two days she is having forceful vomiting episodes after every feed along with spilling or regurgitation of milk.
navedsha on 2017-03-09aethusa is not available in pills form. can we use liquid instead of pills?
navedsha on 2017-03-09Yes certainly. Just one drop in a table spoon of water. But use glass or plastic spoon no metal at all.
daktersaab on 2017-03-10This thread continues beneath the following ad.hi doc
i gave my daughter aethusa cyn 30 c as u said. here are her symptoms now.
she has started vomiting out plain milk as well. Before this medicine, she was vomiting out crudled milk.
her appetite is much reduced. she only breast feed for 3-5 minutes. and sleeps a lot. her urine out put has reduced from 6-8 wet diapers to 3-4wet diapers.
she draws her legs up more often. it seems she has pain in her tummy. she was having 3-4 poops a day. but now its only 1-2....although poops are normal consistancy but she exerts much pressure to defecate.
she is extreamly gasy as soon as few drops of milk get inside. I wonder, if i am feeding her air instead of milk. After that she want to latch but unable, due to pain and bloating.

navedsha on 2017-03-17Give her two pills SEPIA 30c once daily for three days.
Do not over feed . Give frequent but reduced period of feeding for a few days.Report after a week.
