    Poor Charlie. I feel awful.
    I have been trying to get Charlotte to take formula, so it will be easier for OH when i go back PT to work. She has been sick on each type (except SMA which she wont touch) but today she had 50mls of Aptimil in 10 mins (v.fast for her!) she then did 3 projectile vomits and im sure 90% of it all came back up :(
    I have decided to express lots in next couple of weeks and store it up, even though i find it really hard to get much. I can not put her through that again poor bub. I am only working 2 days pw when i do go back, so im sure we would manage with expressing.
    She had formula in hospital, i wonder why it is making her so sick now?

    Have you asked your HV? I suppose it's possible she's a bit lacose intolerant, but you can get soya forumla for that.

    Hi Hels

    You've probably already tried this but do you wind her after ounce? When we were giving Olivia the odd bottle of formula she also had projectile vomiting until we started winding really often.

    Hope she's ok, it's so scary seeing it.

    I do wind her after about half the bottle, she is still only taking 70 mls or so!!!
    Got her a dr appointment after talking to HV to see about the lactose intolerence, can get some soya milk on prescription.
    She is having wet and dirty nappies and is content, and now has gained weight so not too worried.
    Thank hun xx

    When Seren wakes up she gets all excited when she knows I am going to feed her. When I get dressed, she smiles at my boobs when I have no top on, just wants to eat all the time
