Neve had her 2 month appt today, she is now 11lbs 12oz and 22.5 inches. She got her shots, I felt terrible for her and cried.... she was so happy and smiling and cooing and the nurse stuck her. Her little face turned bright red and she started screaming, Of course since I was in her face talking to her she probably thinks mommy did it. She has been ok, fussy though so I finally gave her some tylenol. I was trying to hold off, but she just seemed so unhappy. I am glad the ped told me how much to give her on our instruction sheet because the bottles for infants no longer says.
I also brought up her symptoms of relux and the ped said she thinks either reflux or milk allergy. She gave me a few options, since she is only slightly fussy, she didn't want to medicate her yet. I can completely cut out all dairy for 2wks and see if that helps, I can pump her last evening feeding and add a small amount of rice cereal to it (her symptoms are worst at night - so to thicken it a little - not as a tummy filler), give her an ar formula for her last evening feeding, or try an ar-sensitive formula for a few days to see if that helps. She seemed pleasantly surprised I was still bf - she said most her moms have already started weaning at 6wks. I am just going to try and cut back on dairy and continue to keep her upright I think.

I had some of the same mild reflux symptoms and I cut out almost all my dairy about 3 weeks ago. That did the trick. I can still have stuff made with milk and a small amount of cheese but I don't drink my 2 glasses a day or eat cereal in the a.m. It sucks but if it makes him feel better, it's worth it. Just remember it takes about a week for the milk protein to get out of your system so don't panic if it doesn't work right away. Hope it helps Neve.
