why does my baby cry after every feeding

Feeding can be difficult to get the hang of at first, and although it s a very natural thing to do, your baby s brand new to it! But sometimes there can be medical reasons behind feeding problems which can affect your baby s appetite or the way they absorb food and vital nutrients. Here are some of the causes of feeding problems and the signs which will help you to identify them. You'll recognise colic by a flushed face, clenched fists, and legs pulled up to the chest with 2 - 3 hour spells of loud crying a day, for at least 3 days a week, for 3 weeks.


It s very common and occurs in up to one in four young babies. Find out more about colic and what you can do to relieve it More often than not if your baby is crying before you feed them it will be due to hunger. As you get to know your baby you ll begin to understand
If your baby is crying after feeding it could be wind or colic.


It s really important to wind your baby properly after every feed; we can show you how. It s natural for your baby to lose but they should steadily put it back on. However all babies are different and will tend to do this at different rates. Your health visitor will monitor your baby's weight gain and let you know if they have any concerns at all.


Does your ds finish all the milk in the bottle? If he does then maybe put an extra oz in each feed then he can have more if he wants it. Even though hungry baby milk says from birth, it is hard for newborns digestive systems to cope with, my midwife told me not to give my ds hungry baby milk and just to give more of the regular formula. Babies have trouble digesting lactose(there is even more in hungry baby milk)so if he's having trouble with it, you may be better switching to comfort milk which has less lactose than first milk and is thicker so it stays in the stomach.


If you don't want to change to a comfort milk, you could try colief in his bottles, it breaks down the lactose and makes it easier to digest but it costs е12 to buy and gp's won't usually prescribe it unless you've tried it and it works because of the cost.
