I'm at my wits end and calling the dr (again) today.
My poor LO has had feeding issues since the hospital. He has "wet" burps after every feeding. He screams his poor little head off about 20 minutes after eating and sometimes during eating. He gets hiccups all the time! At the hospital, they had his bed elevated, but they never mentioned that it might be reflux. He's currently on Enfamil Lipil. We tried Enfamil Gentelease. It went down fine, but five minutes after the feeding ended, he threw it all up. He's also very constipated. Should I mention to the dr that I think he may have reflux? Does this even sound like reflux to you guys? It just kills me because he sounds like he's in pain, and I have no idea how to help him.
It sure sounds to me like it could be reflux. My baby, Zaden, is 3 months old. He has reflux. I thought it was colic for the longest time. They put him on Zantac and he started acting better and stopped arching his back. I do think he had colic also (still does a little). He takes nutramigen (since we think he has a milk protein allergy). Are you breastfeeding?
Last Thursday night my little man stopped breathing. They think it was reflux related. They changed his med to prevacid and reglan. I am not giving him the reglan however. Certainly contact your doctor about this. They can help! It'll make everyones life better. Having a crying baby and being a new mom is hard work. Good luck!
It sounds a bit like reflux. Does he arch his back when your feeding him? Not sure if you breast feed or bottle feed, but does he constantly go on and off the nipple? Does he sleep in a crib? If so, I'd definitely recommend lowering the bottom end so that he's elevated. Hopefully your doctor can help. Good luck!
