    Some of you may have read my previous thread http://www.pregnancyforum.co.uk/baby-toddler/230065-too-scared-sleep.html
    I think the problem was me upping her feeds to 6oz because that was the only thing we did differently with her feeds and the same thing happened a couple of weeks ago when we tried to up it, she was previously on 5oz.
    I don't understand why it would affect her so much though, she drinks it all and I followed the instructions exactly on the tin.
    Yet she can have a 5oz bottle and have another ounce out of another bottle and be fine! :eh:
    I've put it back down to 5oz now and she seems fine.

    Although she smiles everyday and is quite playful at times I just feel in general she's not a very happy baby, she cries and whinges a hell of a lot and is very unsettled at night times. I think she wakes up more with wind than being hungry. She's currently on Aptamil comfort milk and we're also using colief drops in her bottle.
    But I was just thinking maybe it's all to do with the formula she's on, maybe Aptamil just doesn't suite her so I was thinking of maybe switching her to Cow & Gate Comfort milk but after last nights fiasco and hysteria I'm terrified of trying it :/ should I just give it a go and see if she's happier? What would you do?

    I would also try another milk like cow and gate comfort and see how you get on if it continues she may need a prescription milk from your gp xx
