Hello, I am sorry your baby is having some feeding issues. I realize it's frustrating and worrisome. The back arching concerns me for gastroesophageal reflux, and / or thrush. Have you or her doctor noticed white plaques in her mouth? Do you have a yeast infection? The baby should be checked for this, as it can cause pain in her throat and cause her to refuse to nurse or take a bottle. The reflux may require oral medication for a few months until she grows out if it if she's not gaining weight.
The doctors have checked for a yeast infection and for thrush she has neither, its almost like it is physchological?
And that may be part of it, but I worry about reflux if she is arching her back as you describe. Recommend you discuss that possibility and the prescription of ranitidine for treatment with the baby's pediatrician.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX is never sick would this not happen if she had reflux? my Health Visitor advised me that she would get comfort from feeding if she had reflux and she hates it, once latched on she feeds very well but its getting her to that stage and as I said thats normally when she is unconscious and has no idea that she is feeding. Also she gets hiccups frequently?
Most infants with reflux refuse to nurse or take a bottle because it hurts them.
Again, recommend you discuss this issue with her pediatrician.
Please ACCEPT if I've answered your questions and post back as much as needed, Best of luck,
