I have a 4 month old. When he was about 3 weeks he was diagnosed with serious reflux and colic.
We tried many different medicines and in the end had Omeprazole.
But he was still pretty bad. Fast forward about 2 weeks and he stopped feeding. He would scream in pain throughout the whole feed and eventually just stopped bothering.
We were admitted to Peads and were in a week on feed watch.
I asked if it was possible he had a milk allergy (as they had no answers for why he wasn't feeding). I was told it absolutely couldn't be.
Anyway came out of hospital in basically the same state with no help so we got hold of some neutrimigen within 3 days his reflux and colic were vastly improved. However he started to develop a rash on his tummy. So we went back to his normal sma the rash went but all his other symptoms cane back. So we went to the drs and got aptimil pepti. His rash then spread to his back, legs and face.
So we changed to neocate LcP yesterday morning. He is now once again refusing to feed and his rash is full body and face.
I can't even count how many drs/nurses/paeds/midwives/health visitors we have seen. No one has any idea.
He desperately wants to feed. But as soon as he takes a suck he pushes it out and screams and screams and screams.
They want to readmit us again for his feeds to be monitored incase he needs tube feeding but this isn't helpful. I need to fix the problem.

Any ideas?
