I’m a new mum and reaching out for advice with my daughter who is 8 weeks old.
My little one was born 4 weeks early. We had minor complications when she first arrived into the world with her blood sugars nothing else was a concern.
As she was early I had no milk. I tired stimulation for milk and I had nothing. I felt awful as I couldn’t provide for my daughter.
At hospital we were supplied with Cow and Gate but once we came home I changed too Aptamil.
Once home I recorded bowel movements to be normal until the stools become green. When the stools had become green she had stop passing regularly and wasn’t going up too three days. Within the three days she was trying to push hard, drawing her legs up to her chest and going red in the face. Naturally I googled what to do and tried her with some cooled boiled water. Nothing happened.
Next we paid a visit to our local health visitor how recommended to change her milk. We are now using Cow and Gate Comfort for colic and constipation. Her feeding schedule hasn’t changed and she is taking recommend dosage however this milk has now given her diarrhoea and she seems to not settle after her feed like she did with Aptamil. Only comfortable having cuddles.
My question is should I change back to Aptamil or should I continue using the Cow and Gate? Or will this upset her more?
