Our little one is 4 weeks old and always had formula milk. Every time he feeds, he will drink a little bit of milk (around 30ml) then cry uncontrollably for a good 20-30 mins, before having more milk and crying again for 20-30 mins or longer, sometimes multiple times over to finish the bottle. I try to burp him during and after feeding, sometimes he lets out some big burps but sometimes there’s nothing. Sometimes he cries so much it sounds like he is in pain, arches his back and throws his head back, which can make it really difficult to burp him as it can be difficult to hold him upright or on my shoulder as he thrashes around so much. He also gets hiccups a lot after feeding.
Does anyone have any advice on what I can do? It’s so upsetting and breaks my heart to see him crying like that, sometimes I feel so useless at consoling him as nothing I do seems to work.
Thank you xxx
