NBB Question from Baylee: Hi, my bubs is 4 months old and sleeps in a love to dream swaddle, I also wrap/put a blanket around her to try and keep her down the bottom of her cot.... But most nights when I check her before I go to bed she has uncovered herself and is half way up the cot, she's such a little wiggler!! She has also started to roll when she wakes up of a morning before I go in to her.... Any suggestions on how to keep her at the bottom of the cot without tying her feet to the rails, and any suggestions on how to transition from swaddle to sleeping bag? ... See moreSee less
Shannon AndrewWe used the love to dream 50/50. Eased our sons arms out gradually - have the zip attaching the arms to the swaddle a bit looser each day and it took about a week. You won't be able to stop her moving up the cot, once her arms are out of the swaddle just start using a warm sleeping bag so it doesn't matter so much if she loses her covers overnight20 hours ago · 7
Belinda MagroI went straight from a swaddle to a sleeping bag when my boy turned 3 months. He hated being swaddled tightly and had to have his arms out which is why I love sleeping bags. Unlike swaddles and blankets they never fall off or move during the night.21 hours ago · 3
Andrea BlackburneTransition to a sleeping bag. We did one arm out for about 1-2 weeks and when we came to putting the other arm out she was fine. She also wriggles around at the start of the night but I know she is safe with no blankets in the cot and her arms out. She ends up all over the cot! ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚17 hours ago
Kylie BishopSeems like they are cold to me, I was always told if a baby moves a lot it's because they are trying to get warm. Room should be at 20 & should still have sheet & 4 layers of cotton blankets on top with the sleeping bag on.18 hours ago

Bernadette RaveseI also just put bub in a sleeping bag one night. I lay her at the bottom, but she's up, down, sideways, on her belly, and all over the place. It's just her finding a comfy spot! I know she's warm with a sleeping bag on.21 hours ago · 3
Kristy VassalloWas exactly the same as you at 4 months. Turns out bub didn't want to be in the LTD anymore and all her moving was her trying to escape! Went cold turkey and put her in a sleeping bag one day. It took a couple days for her to get used to it and for me to get the right combo of clothes and sleeping bag but now she doesn't move because she can stretch out and is warm enough. Good luck ðŸ™‚20 hours ago

Natalie OpieI have my 8 week old in a bag then wrapped over the top.
Try a loose material, like Muslin, to allow the arms to be free when she rolls in her sleep
With wiggling, my son did it too .. as long as bubs is in the appropriate bag, it's not a big deal. I used to check him through the night and cover him with a blanket, where ever he was16 hours ago
Taylor RobertsI could be wrong. But I don't think having them right down the bottom is that much of a big deal unless youre using a blanket as they can slide down under it. My son sleeps smack bang in the middle and is in a sleeping bag. But he doesn't move during the night unless he wakes.18 hours ago

Alina Alexandra PiloiuWhen they start rolling you can't stop them... my bub is 6 months today and I've been using a sleeping bag since he was 3 months and I haven't worried with him going up and down the cot since. He just finds his comfy position to sleep in and I let him. Once they learn to roll over both ways the risk of SIDS decreases significantly, it's actually better to let them be.18 hours ago · 1

NBB Question from Ang: My now 6 month old has been an amazing sleeper since around 12 weeks. 7-7 with one feed through the night. She's recently started eating lots more solids and seems more alert, wanting to sit up (not independently yet) and not liking lying down. Just wondering if other mums found sleep worsened after starting more solids or during big changes like learning to sit up? I'm up every 1-2 hours at the moment all of a sudden and I'm a bit of a tired mummy. Anyone else experience this? ... See moreSee less
Jessica WadeThis is happening to me at the moment too - last night was 11.30, 12.30, 3, 4 and 5 - brutal! He's 5.5 months - I'm hoping it's a leap or a wonder week or some other buzz word that means it won't last long!21 hours ago · 5
Alex MathewsI just went through this. My son is now 7 months old. It was teething! I had no idea as that was his only symptom. I went through it for about 2 months of him waking every 1.5-2 hours.

Tiara MacroneThe wonder weeks app is amazing for things like this. My lg was like this at 6 mo ths waking 8 plus times a night. Shes now almost 8 months and either wakes between 1 to 4 times a night for food or cuddles back to sleep or doesnt wake at all. Its very hard to predict but some nights i do dream feed her to make sure she doesnt need to wake if shes hungry.21 hours ago · 1
Jessica Paige WareOnce my son could sit up, crawl and pull himself up onto things, he's been a horrid sleeper.
He's 11 months old now.
My son will go to sleep in his cot at around 8:30 (hopefully) and will wake up anytime from 11-2 and only go back to sleep if we put him in his bed.
And then wake up at about 7:30-8.21 hours ago · 1
Solange GrahamAhhh yes, happening in this house as well! I've had to be tough with my mr 6 month old as he had been sleeping through since 4 weeks to wanting to be up and feeding to sleep every hour or two! Ire been giving him a decent feed before bed (if he falls asleep quickly I'll offer a top up when he wakes (usually about 30 minutes later) then will offer water and cuddles if he wakes before 3am. He cottoned on pretty quickly with a few decent tantrums he now generally only wakes up for a cuddle and a quick sip of water and has been stretching his morning milk feed. Fingers crossed, touch wood, etc. that the positive results continue!17 hours ago
Heather MatthewsMy bub was the same. Feed 9pm, 5am. Then at 4 months she went to 6,8,10,12,2,4 etc. for my it was more that she wanted me to nurse her back to sleep. She developed sleep association- associating milk to sleep. With some self settling she's coming good just now. Not sure if this may be totally different to what your going through but worth a thought. Good luck :)16 hours ago
Rachel ImogenThis sounds like I could have written it, 2 weeks ago. For us, it was a phase and has gradually gotten back to normal. But I'm sure there's more terrible sleep ahead when she starts learning more new tricks or starts teething!21 hours ago

Stacey Alexandra SouthamYep. My little one ended up refusing to sleep in her cot after sleeping through the night for 3-4 months. Everything changed at 6 months. She's sleeping with me now (12m) which means much more rest but a problem for transitioning back. Just do what your Bub needs & realise it won't last long till things change.

Jemma Louise MagnusWe use dymples nappies from big w and their wipes. But when bubs is little up till about 2 months we use huggies nappies.

I found sudocream disagreed with bubs so went with mustela.17 hours ago
Laura BartoliI LOVE Aldi scented wipes, they're not too thick, so overall, very easy to manipulate and real value for money As a daily nappy cream Sudocream works the best for my boys. As all purpose moisturising cream Aldi's Lacura for Extremely Dry Skin with oats extract is the best, but they only sell it once a year (late autumn-early winter)so I always buy more than 1 L bottle. I tried every moisturising cream known to man (almost) and that one won by far.22 hours ago
Jessica Du MaurierAnd use aldi nappies as they r UNREAL best value by a country mile. Very absorbant and flexifit. Also they have wetness indicator which helps when bub is little. I was hughies only person with first bub and with number 2 its aldi aldi aldi...u will save a bomb and why not when quality is still very high if not better than huggies.22 hours ago · 1

NBB Question from Sophie: I am pregnant with my second baby and wanting some help. When I had my first baby I wasn't able to breastfeed as I suffer with polycistic ovarian syndrome and didn't produce any milk. Is there anything I can do early in the pregnancy to help with my supply so will be able to successfully breastfeed. When my first born was 3 days old they tried giving me motillium tablets but she had gotten used to the bottle and the taste of formula so wouldn't latch. Really hoping to breastfeed this time around as I feel as though I let me LO down!
See response in comments from our Expert - Katie James Midwife and Lactation consultant. ... See moreSee less
New Born BabyHi Sophie,
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can lead to a delay in your milk coming in and for some women problems achieving a good supply of milk. There isnâ€™t any good research that shows us yet if there is anything which is definitely beneficial to do antenatally. It may be worth discussing with your midwives about antenatal hand expression. The research on this is very limited too, but sometimes women hand express the colostrum from 36 weeks of pregnancy and store it for the first day after birth if their baby is at higher risk of needing more milk. Itâ€™s important that women who have been advised to do this have no risk factors like a low lying placenta. Always check with your midwife or doctor first before commencing this. The other thing to note is it is really important for you to hold your baby in skin to skin contact for long periods of time as this will help baby to feed more regularly and give you a better chance of bringing your milk in. If your baby isnâ€™t feeding well in the early days it is important for you to express until baby is feeding well. Hope everything goes well this time Sophie. Warm Regards Katie24 hours ago · 4
Sharyn MooreI have PCOS, and never had any issues breastfeeding apart from my milk coming in a bit later than normal (day 4-5 rather than 2-3). My only advice would be to keep bub on the breast as much as possible, as that stimulates your milk production. And also, the cluster feeding in the first 24-36 hours is your bub bringing your milk in, so don't stress about that.23 hours ago · 1
Ruth Kerr-SheppardI started to hand express from 36 weeks but unfortunately still had a slight delay but I finger fed my daughter so no bottle and when my milk came in she went straight to the breast :) now I have too much milk!! (I did have her at 37 weeks so that didn't help me either and had other problem that would effect my milk) get straight onto the breastfeeding clinic at King eddies they are amazing and I'm a midwife! I also did motilium, fenugreek, lactation cookies, pumping, breastfed after birth and heaps of skin to skin.23 hours ago · 1
Katie AnnI have PCOS and did not produce colostrum/milk with my first.

Stephanie D'UlisseI have severe pcos (absolutely no Ovulation) and was put on Motillium for 2 weeks. I am now at 14 months still breastfeeding.

The amount of wet nappies is a true indication.15 hours ago

Michelle Worrall SlaterI have PCOS and My LO had a tongue tie and high palate and could not get an effective latch so I had to exclusively express, which did not help already low production.

Jacqueline JonssonIf last bub was already on formula & bottles at day 3 I don't think your milk really had a chance to come in. I would suggest lots of skin to skin, put bub to breast as soon as possible after birth, offer the breast whenever bub shows feeding cues & every 3 hours at the max. If you're really concerned you won't produce milk or if bub isn't sucking well you could always hand express or pump between feeds then give the milk by syringe/finger feed or use a supplemental nursing system so you can avoid bottles. Contact an IBCLC before birth to get advice too. Goodluck!24 hours ago · 1

Charlotte Rose NealeyI flew to Cyprus when my daughter was 11 months - the plane toilets are small but it was perfectly manageable to change her nappy so I wouldn't worry.

Kedea Lorraine AllenMy little man is almost 13 weeks and doesn't really like tummy time on his play mat.. however, he loves tummy time when he's with his dad and doing tummy time on his dads belly ðŸ‘ i guess just try different things and baby will respond to what they like ðŸ‘Œ1 day ago · 2
Tara PhillipsBy bub didnt like tummy time much at all and only for very short periods so we didnt do alot of it.. but she always prefered to be held upright on our shoulder and developed great neck strength1 day ago · 2
Alicia MasonYou could lie him on his back to play. The time on his back will give him an opportunity to experiment with its rolling, especially if his play mat is near a window or a chair where you sit or some sort of interesting view other than a tv screen. Within 3 or 4 weeks he will probably reach the rolling milestone. Then he'll be able to flip onto his belly whenever he wants some tummy time.22 hours ago
Debra Ellismy daughter hated it. but if someone was on the floor infront of her playing she would last longer. sometimes she would manage a minute other times 10 to 15. never really worked out about rolling to her back even with help. and now had worked out the army crawl always on her tummy. still needs to work out how to sit herself up again as she gets grumpy when cant get to things. She has always had strength in her neck etc just hated tummy. now sitting she just sees something and goes for it. love the leaps and bounds from the 5/6 month mark. every month something new. she also loved tummy time on me. Just find what works you will both work it out. every little bit helps and I was admittedly slack with it as my back and knees not good on the ground. Also get one of those little moon shape pillows she did better with one of them under her armpits1 day ago
Samantha HillPut him on his tummy leaning over a boomerang pillow or nursing pillow to help him prop his body up until he strengthens his neck and arms muscles my little man used to hate it too!

Kathryn AurichtI know its not the same at sll but my daughter would fall asleep on her tummy no matter what I tried. Blown up balloons just infront of her face and a mirror were the only 2 things that worked for short periods. Then she would just go to sleep.
Maybe try a baby chiropracter? Bub might have discomfort from an alignment issue?1 day ago
Laura Jade PieterseTry tummy time on you rather than on the mat/floor.
We had the same problem with our Bub up until about 10 weeks.
Then would spend about 1-2 mins on the floor without screaming.
She is now 15 weeks and started rolling from back to tummy unassisted19 hours ago

Pepper GriffithsPerhaps Try rolling a towel and placing it under his arms/chest to give him a lift up. My bubs hated it for the first few months and would cry every time. When we started using a towel he was a lot better. He is almost 4 months now and no longer needs it - in fact he started to turn himself around away from it so I took that as the sign he didn't need it anymore ðŸ˜Š1 day ago

Kirsty SimMy boy was like this till he started rolling iver after a wile. He hated being on the flior wich was the problem but doing it on the bed and stuff like that he had no problem. Ive learnt that some babys hate having all that presure on to there tummies and wich the bed and soft spots he was fine. My boy loved it on the bed and hated being on the floor i thought it was because he was to low and everything seemed to be so scary and big. He was soft baby liked things soft and hated hard things.1 day ago
Rachel PeitaMine only ever cried when placed on their tummy when they had a tummy pain (burp stuck) or just wanted to sleep) maybe try burping him. Another thing is to lay down facing him so he gets used to the position with you in view =)1 day ago
Jessica Du MaurierHe doesnt like it because it's probably uncomfortable for him but just lay down on your back and talk to him and reassure him with your voice. He is probably a bit little for toys but get the toys that make sounds and just try and distract him...and also keep in mind he doesnt need long periods of tummy time...couple of mins at a time upto 5 mins.1 day ago

Laura ThomasI made sure i gave a bottle when bubs first wakes up. Don't wait until they are screaming hungry. Also i found my bubs likes the bottle a bit warmer than normal as i am normally a warmer person. So you might need to experiment with the temp as well.1 day ago · 3

Jessica Du MaurierJust persistence. I use tommee tippee closer to nature bottles as its meant to look like a nipple and ive found for my 2 kids they are best. If a baby is hungry it will learn really quick where they can source milk from. Just keep offering a bottle. Even express some of your milk into a bottle or on the teat so the bub can smell your milk on the teat.1 day ago · 3

Chloe RandI had the same problem and got the pigeon bottles from the chemist warehouse it's really like the nipple very soft and stretchy just had to assume the position a couple of time then was all good and now she takes any bottle20 hours ago
Rhiannon StantonI started giving my bub a bottle as soon as she was born as well as breastfeeding. She has never had any nipple confusion. My advice is try a bottle that is recommended for breast fed babies. Tommee tippee bottles are amazing and imitate the breast- that's the only bottle my mixed fed baby will take. I breastfeed and pump and it works well for us. Also if you keep trying it might be easier for your baby to accept a bottle now at 9 weeks then later on. Good luck!23 hours ago

NBB question from Maree: Hi I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and am getting induced around the 38 week mark, due to my previous pregnancy not going so well (the labor) I am just wondering how other mothers experiences were with getting induced and what to expect? ... See moreSee less
Hayley MareeI was induced at 42 weeks
Was a very quick labour (4 hours)
But the pains were next level. I did not get a break in between contractions what so ever.
I much preferred my eldest sons 19 hour labour.
Not every induction story is bad. Unfortunately in my case it was..
Goodluck2 days ago · 4
Renae O'NeilWas excellent experience! Apart from having the epidural straight away meant I couldn't leave my bed the whole time. Also, having a catheter in for almost 12hrs made peeing very painful for two weeks after. It was very relaxed and calm atmosphere the whole time until the last hour when I needed to push, then ended up having forceps. It was not as scary as I had imagined for my first labor ðŸ˜Š2 days ago
Kate AlisonWas induced at 39 weeks due to hypertension. Was dilated 1-2 cm before starting so had waters broken and put on pitocin drip at 9am. Pretty intense contractions so had an epidural at about 11. Was super relaxed and calm after that and had my little lady by 5pm. Laughed her in to the world. Was a great experience for me.2 days ago · 3
Emma PayneI was induced due to baby being in destress and very small at 37+1. I was told at the start that i was most likely going to end in csection as neither my body or baby was ready. Jell went in at 915 contractions started hard and fast at 930 and water broke at 1005. From then i was left to labour on my own, contractions slowed down so at 2pm they gave me the drip. Went to 3cm by 5pm. The rest of my labour was a horror story and eneded in general anesthetic csection at 955pm due to issues with my baby and they needed to get him out.
I think it can go either way be prepared for both a long and short labours. Another girl gave birth 3weeks after me and she was in labour for almost 3days and was induced2 days ago · 1
Melinda CleaverMy 3rd baby I had the gel, had my waters broken them I went into labour. Was over in 3 hours. My 4th I had the gel. The next day my waters broke in their own, by that night I was hooked up to the drip and labour started. It was full on with contractions starting before the last finished. The drip is horrible2 days ago · 1
Pamela Jane WebbI had drip induction commence at 9am with the goal being to deliver by around midday... well... that didn't happen... it ploughed on until 9pm.
The feeling of the induction was like the last hour of what a normal labour feels like but from the very beginning. So I recommend you prepare to plan for an epidural if you are happy to do that.
The induction was given to time contractions for every 15 minutes so by 1pm I was truly exhausted so they reduced it for an hour and a half to have contractions every 20-25 mins.
After that they needed to bring it back up to every 15 minutes until I actually was ready to push.
Unfortunately by 2pm I was too far to have an epidural.
Gas didn't do much besides make me feel nauseous.
My 2nd I didn't have epidural bur I think I may do so with this one on the way as I'm a bit older now and more worried.2 days ago
Leigh SearleI was induced with my 3rd son at 38 weeks... I had the tape inserted at 5 but nothing happened for 24 hrs, they decided to break my waters as I was 1-2 cm dilated to see if that would bring on labour.. well it certainly did.. they broke my waters at 5 pm and at 5.07 he was born so a 7 min labour!! It was amazing ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€
But with my 4th I was induced again and needed to pitocin via drip to get my contractions regular.. they were so painful.! I only had an active labour of 12 mins with her but sure felt like forever..2 days ago
Renee JonesI was induced at 38+6 & was 1cm when they put the gel in at 3PM, contractions started at 6PM & was full on by 7PM. Was 4cm at 8PM & stayed that way until emergency c-section at 4AM the next day. Bubs heart rate was all over the place & unfortunately my labour didn't progress even after they broke my waters at about 1AM. I don't remember it being quite as bad as it sounds. Good luck with everything & hope yours goes a bit better than a lot of these!2 days ago
Kirsty Lee PhillippsI was induced with the drip in. My waters broke at 36+4 and then nothing else happened. So they put the drip in at 9am and he was born at 10pm. Panadene forte got me thru till 3pm then i had gas. And it was a good time to ask for it too haha. At 4-5pm it started getting really painful. I was able to push at about 7 i think. I had fentinel instead of pethadene. It did nothing. Go for something else. Next time im just going to have pethadene. It was my first baby so of course i thought i was dying, but im told induction with the hormone drip is more painful than natural birth. But its quicker.2 days ago
Kathryn NolanI had waters broken 6pm, already 2cm dilated, epidural went in and was given a drip... epidural 'wore off' even after a few top ups (turned out it actually came out but we didn't know at the time - anesthetist was in a rush when he put it in) ended up delivering at 4am at 38weeks exactly with forceps, unfortunately there was almost no pain relief at that stage. I would go through the same process again if needed, as long as my body was ready ðŸ˜Š good luck!2 days ago
Ronnelle BrewerI was induced at 38 weeks. I had the tape first it did nothing. I had a rest day, then the gel. Did nothing and the following day had a drip at 9am and at 7pm that night was only dilated 4cm and ended up with an emergency c section!! Thank God for epidural2 days ago
Kirsty JaneWas induced with both of my pregnancies- had the gel at 7 am and had Bub at 7pm (1st bub) and second Bub was quicker and had her by 5pm. Wonderful experience for both children. Epidural is great! Good luck! Not everyone has horror stories :)2 days ago
Cass DevereuxI was induced on my due date (first baby). I had him in 3.5 hours. But had a PPH afterwards. The pain was manageable with morphine and gas. I don't tolerate pain at all and I was anxious about it. I thought it all went well overall ðŸ˜„2 days ago
Elisabeth GrealyHard and fast - went from worsening period pain to 3.5 mins on, 30 secs off within very little time. Apparently your natural painkilling hormones dont have time to get released, or something like that. The epidural I got after about 4 hrs was a lifesaver.2 days ago
Nurul H. Kasim BrownBad experience for me.. was induced at 38w5days due to GDM .. strip..gel..ballon..suffered for 3 days...all methods were failed..doctor broke the water..still no dilation...day 4.. c.sec.. today 28days..2 days ago
Chantelle GeammalEveryone is different I was induced at 40 plus 2 weeks with my first 5 hr labour 2nd at 38 weeks 24hr labour and nearly c section cause progression wasn't great 3rd 37 weeks due to certain things and ended up with a c section cause my body wasn't ready and wouldnt dilate more then 1 cm.
Being induced early does increase a c section I suggest if u can go to due date then do that and get induced then,you can avoid having a long labour because your body is being forced into it when it's not ready. But everyone's body is different.2 days ago · 1

Chantelle CooperMy son had to be induced at 37 weeks
I'm not going to lie, it hurt it was uncomfortable and I was in pain for days..but my boy wasn't too good - he had a month stay in hospital after open heart bypass surgery - he's now kicking goals and is thriving, but I wish I had the option of going when he was ready, but my body failed him (my waters leaked but didn't break - so it was almost a dry birth hence why I had to be induced)2 days ago

Liza RoweI was induced with my second. He was 3 weeks early. Waters tore and had 48 hours to naturally go into labour and if nothing then yea induced. My labour started but not good enough. Once induced maybe within half hour contractions started properly. I had to walk around with the pole as you are tied to it as such. My labour was 3 hours long.
With my first (very abnormal labour). My contractions did not settle inbetween so i got given some stuff to help with that. I think it was the same as what they give for inducing. But she was an 18.5 hour labour. Maybe 12 hours with the liquid stuff...2 days ago

Andrea Cheree EliottI tested and mine was extremely faint, I was a week and a bit late. I ended up buying a clear blue test with showed up 5-6 weeks positive! I'm now 36 weeks!2 days ago
Ashleigh McleanI took 3 tests, each 3 days apart. The first 2 were negative and the third was this faint so decided to go to the GP to confirm. I went to a medical centre that took walk-ins because I couldn't wait. I was initially told I wasn't pregnant (by the nurse at the medical centre that did the test), then was told by the GP that I WAS pregnant! I think it took a little longer than expected of their urine test to show the result. I was still apprehensive to get excited until I went to my normal GP for a blood test, which confirmed I was definitely pregnant!2 days ago · 1
Emily Eileen KarzonMine was just like this and I had a baby girl ðŸ˜
It wouldn't show anything if you weren't pregnant so it's obviously pick up on some hormones.
I was about 3 weeks when mine looked like this2 days ago · 1
Amy TasMy first pregnancy test was done at my GPs office and it was negative, the doctor even reassured me that I could always try again, two weeks later I had a blood test at the hospital and it came back positive, I was 6 weeks pregnant.
If you're unsure, I recommend getting a blood test, it'll tell you 100% if your pregnant or not.2 days ago · 1
Megan Nicole LockhartThese are are so crappy. Plus you're supposed to read results after 5 minutes not read after it dries. I wouldn't trust this result. Take a digital test or a first response. That's what I used when I found out I was pregnant with my son.2 days ago
Angela PumpaIf there's a faint line that means positive. That happened to me and a few days later I took another test and it was darker.
Congrats!2 days ago · 4

Deb StacyYes which means your pregnant any line means pregnant the line just means the amount of hcg is in your system could just mean your very early in your pregnancy both my babies were like this2 days ago

NBB Question from Sarah: Hi, I'm Just wondering if there are any breastfeeding mums out there with bubs that are Dairy intolerant/allergic? My 3 month old was passing blood in her stools a few weeks ago, I took her to the doctor and they told me to cut dairy from my diet and have her stool tested. After 1 week no dairy the blood has reduced a lot, more then half and bub seems to be more settled. We got the tests back today and the doc said it was negative for any infections or bacteria and that by me cutting dairy and the difference in bub it proves its an intolerance or allergy. How long would it take for the dairy to pass through my system and hers? Is this the normal procedure for diagnosing an intolerance or allergy?. Any advice? ... See moreSee less
Lucinda GlennIt can take up to 7 weeks (that is what I took for us), and we also cut out soy. This cleared up his mucus and blood and saw him more settled :) there is a Breastfeeding for babies that are allergic and intolerant FB group that I've found amazing for questions and help, and also what goodies can be found in the supermarket :)2 days ago · 1
Amanda RoseI am currently going through this process now. My son gets vicious red rashes on his face and neck when I feed him and I am currently trying to work out what is causing it and thinking it's cows milk dairy. I am trying my best to be dairy free but man it is really hard! I can't keep up with eating enough food I'm always so hungry didn't realise how much breastfeeding takes energy from your body. I am going to join the group others have mentioned. We have just been referred to a paed today from GP as little man has barely gained weight in last 2 months. Good luck with your journey.2 days ago · 2
Tara Cameron-SmithWe had this experience with our 2nd son. He was extremely windy and his stools got progressively stringier until they were straight mucus and streaked with blood at around 6weeks old. Was told by numerous doctors and nurses that it was normal ðŸ˜¤ clearly it wasn't. I did my research while waiting for a pead appt and cut dairy completely from my diet. I think it was approximately 3 weeks and he was a changed kid. Normal poo's and next to no colic/wind. I kept up the diet for the duration of feeding and then we very slowly introduced him to dairy from around 18months. It took him a while to build a tolerance but he is now 3.5 yrs and able to eat/drink it all. I supplemented his diet with an all natural toddler milk by natures happiness called little munchkins. You can buy online. Completely plant based and organic, but provided extra calcium & nutrients to him on top of his solid diet once we stopped breastfeeding around 14months. All the best!2 days ago · 2
Anh LeHappened same to my daughter. She got mucus in her stool but no blood. Paediatrician told me to remove dairy from my daily intake and put baby on soy based formula as I mixed feeding. He told me that even 1 little amount of dairy I take also matter to the baby and take 2 weeks to be cleared from mom's body. So I had to be on strictly dairy diet for 1 month. As soon as dairy was removed, no mucus at all. Doc said it could take up to 12 months for the inflammation could be cleared from baby's bowel. Lucky my daughter's case, after the stool test, its negative. So I could be back to my normal meals and baby s back to cow's milk. Good luck with you and ur bub.2 days ago · 1
Shana LattaIf you wish to PM me Sarah you can! I went through this with my son who is now 18 months and still intolerant. (In fact cutting dairy cured the reflux and IBS I have struggled with all my life and no longer need medication)
It took about a month for all the symptoms of intolerance to leave my Bub completely. We cut soy as well as the proteins are similar.
It seems really daunting at first but you will find there is actually lots out there safe to eat.
I bought a Thermomix when my son started solids and now I bake all our own snacks and of course dinners and it has been an absolute godsend.

Stacey BrownOne of my daughters story was the same as yours. I ended up cutting out dairy, soy and eggs and that made a huge difference to her stools plus her behaviour - was way less cranky! Continued to breastfeed till she was 18 months. Reintroduced different things after she turned 1, as per paed. Shes now 3 and can eat everything! It's very daunting cutting all that out of your diet at first but gets easier. Good luck!2 days ago · 1
Dominique WoodPlease join this group. So many knowledgable people (whether you are breast feeding or not.
Happy to Pm you also if you have questions. We are allergic to dairy egg and soy, through breast milk. Blood was one symptoms alongside other symptoms.
It can take up to 6 weeks to leave the system.
Soy is a similar protein, so a lot of people with a cows milk protein allergy also have a soy allergy.
There's a lot of Information in the group. Unfortunately milk and soy are in so many things. And it can be hidden. It's a hard road, but so worth it.
Pm for more info x2 days ago · 3
Amee MackayMy baby is the same, I couldn't eat dairy, nuts or red meat (red meat has the same protein as dairy) the pediatrician put her on special formula. She is so much happier now2 days ago · 1
Sarah NichollsThanks for all the help guys..
This post was a little delayed, since then we have seen a pedi and had it confirmed for an allergy to the proteins in cows milk. We are still breastfeeding and have completely cut dairy, bub is doing great. I will definitely join that group! Thanks so much ðŸ˜Š2 days ago · 1
Abigail BarnesTotally agree with Dominique. Join that group, it's been a lifesaver for me. My little one is dairy free, soy free & but free but we didn't really see an improvement until she started solids (about 3/4 months after eliminating.)
Happy for you to PM me with questions but honestly, that group will be such a help!2 days ago · 1
Jessica BrightI think it can take up to 2 weeks for it to leave your system. I notice it takes about that long for my bub to settle down if I accidentally eat some dairy. We did the food exclusion to find her intolerance. You just have to be really diligent in reading labels because dairy hides in heaps of stuff.2 days ago · 1
Vanessa GucicSame thing happened to us. I cut dairy and after a few months he was ok and I slowly introduced it back into my diet recommended by my Dr. :)2 days ago · 1
