My daughters doctor is a nincapoop She has ALL the sings of reflux, and he keeps saying "she'll outgrow it" ..So today, I changed doctors. And it takes 45 days for medicaid to change doctors, but HOPEFULLY her new doc will help her out. I mean, it'd be one thing if he had looked into it and said there was nothing too out of the normal (which I KNOW he wouldn't have said that), but he didn't even check into it. I had had enough of it so I changed doctors. She's only 4 months old, but she has all the signs, and has since birth. And he got told @ EVERY apt.
Untill I can get her in the doc do you have any suggestions to help her a little bit more?
Nuhuh! Our Medicaid changed the day we called.. did you call the number on the back of the card? Then tell them you wanted to switch doctors?? They should've given you a number to call then.. I dunno. Maybe it's different there.
My son is 6 months old, allergic to milk, and has had reflux since he was born.. but you know what? He HASN'T outgrown it, and the Reglan that he is on.. well.. it hasn't helped at all. My guess is it may be a while before your daughter outgrows it..
There are a few things you can do like trying a little rice or oatmeal or barley cereal in her milk, letting her sit up about 15-25 minutes after a meal, burping her often... have you tried baby food yet? My son even spits up baby food, but every baby is a bit different.
When my dd came home from the hospital she would not sleep and would spit up all the time. Finally at 3 months I told the doctor I thought she had reflux. She did outgrow the spitting up at 10 months or so. Since turning 1 and going on cows milk it's gotten worse. She doesn't spit up, but she is congested a lot, coughing, and crying a lot more. This past month and a half she's been to the doctor 8 times. Finally today we seen a different doctor. She thinkis it might be a milk allergy. She said that dd could have reflux, but to stop Zantac. She said if I didn't notice a difference right away it wasn't working.
I hope that you can see your new doctor soon. Have you tried having her sleep at an incline? Good luck to you!! It's hard to see the little ones in pain.

Hello and welcome to the reflux board. I'm Lindsay, one of the co-hosts. That sounds similar to what we went through with my son's first dr. She was pretty useless. I printed a list of reflux symptoms - he had nearly every single one. She insisted it was colic and that he would magically outgrow it at 3 months. He was about 2 months at the time. We switched peds immediately. The new ped put him on axid (after reacting to zantac) and he's doing much better now.
This link has a list of things you can do to help her in the meantime. Please let us know how it goes when you see the new dr!
she does better now w/ tummy time, but just in the last few weeks. Before hand, she would SCREAM and burry her face. Now she's good for about 10 min at a time. I just can't wait to get into the new doctor
