@Thalia I’ll try this position too! Right now I’m doing the football hold and it’s tough to get into lol How’s he doing now though? That sounds terrifying to experience!!
My baby was so bad. And honestly something so simple was the fix. Gripe water and baby water was my best friend. Stopped the hiccups immediately. You can give it to them via syringe separately or together
30 minutes upright post feed. I breastfeed and found the side lying position went best for us feeding wise but at night I would stay lying down (we cosleep) and I would lay on my side and drape him across my ribs with him upright to burp him and for his vertical time. He liked it. When he was at his worst I wasn’t exclusively providing breastmilk. He doesn’t do well with formula and improved with breast milk but does take medication for it twice a day now. He had Sandifer Syndrome and after he projectile vomited and then had what looked to me like a seizure, I rushed to the hospital with him. He was in so much pain from the acid he was arching his back hard.
@Nicole thank you!! I’ve just fed him upright for a shorter period and kept him upright for about 20 min and it seems to have helped! I’m hoping cutting out dairy has the same effect for me 🤞🏼
This is normal and it’ll correct itself unless baby isn’t gaining weight or able to eat efficiently
My little girl had really bad reflux. HV advised gaviscon and different meds but they seemed to have other nasty side effects. I cut dairy from my diet when she was 2 weeks old and all of her symptoms completely settled with no meds. Feed upright and try to keep him upright for 30 mins afterwards (not always possible) but definitely helped. N x
@Khriss he does get hiccups often!! I’ll ask my midwife about the gripe and baby water! Thank you ☺️
