Her weight gain is adequate for her age. Continue with exclusive breast feeding. Stop giving lactulose for her constipation. Frequency of passing motion could vary on breastfeeding. She may pass motion either 5-6 times in a day or once in 3-5 days. If her constipation lasting more than 5-7 days with other symptoms like persistent vomiting and abdominal distension, she needs to be evaluated by your pediatrician or some tests if needed. About reflex continue same medication and keep her in upright position for atleast 30 mins immediately after feeds. For noisy breathing, please consult your pediatrician to rule out its nasal obstruction only or some associated chest finding too.
