I have a 10 week old who will take NO supplementation whatsoever. No bottle, lactaid, syringe, cup..not even if you spill drops will he drink...he gets angry.


HOWEVER...he laso has reflux and is probably the most extreme gassy baby you may have ever seen.


Poops once in 5 days and is probably very backed up (I know BF babies don't poop for 5-7 days but this is more than just normal)


He had terrible gas and tummy ache last two days and he also started on prevacid the last two days after abruptly stopping zantac (meaning no overlap). dont think there is a connection. BUT now he has developed a nursing aversion and is not feeding from me except when sleepy and at that just 25% and falling asleep.


NOW he is hungry and crying but he comes anywhere near me and is screaming.


SO here is my boy...wont take supplements and wont feed on me.. What is to happen to him?


Am in tears and going absoliutely berserk... what can I do?????

Have you met with a lactation consultant?  This sounds like something that needs one-on-one in-person help rather than internet advice.


Good luck!

You need to call a lactation consultant or a LLL leader.

i'd recommend a good ibclc (make sure they know it is urgent) and help for your baby's gut.  An elimination diet (i actually found the total elimination diet the easiest), hypoallergenic probiotics, and digestive enzymes may help a great deal.
