Not sure what to make of all this and thought maybe some of you ladies have gone through this and had some advice!
Chloe is now 3.5 months old. She is generally a happy baby but she occasionally fusses after feedings and seems to be in pain due to gas. Her stool has also always been on the liquidy side.
She had the rotavirus vaccine about 2.5 weeks ago and about a week after that she seemed worse with watery stool (still once a day or every 2 days). Last week I decided to try switching her formula from Enfamil A to Good Start on the advice of a friend who said it made a huge difference in terms of gas/fussiness. On Saturday afternoon I made the switch and she immediately seemed less gassy and more content. I noticed on Sunday her stool was green with same consistency and today it's still green but more pasty. On Sunday she ate more formula per feeding than usual (close to 120 ml per feed 7x day - with only one feeding at night sleeping from 7 pm to 7 am). So, I was very happy with the change. However today she is eating way less per feed (55-90 ml) and more often every 1-2 hrs. I'm not sure what to make of this! She gets fussy during feeding and bites on the nipple and cries. Sometimes she will take a bit more after a 20 minute break but sometimes not. She is still happy but I wonder if I should be concerned. She does spit up once in a whole - maybe once or twice a day (although has only spit up once since the switch) and gets the hiccups once or twice a day. Has anyone experienced this?
