Does anyone's baby have Acid Reflux?

I am pretty sure SOMETHING is going on with Kaylin, if it's not reflux, then I don't really know what it is. The amount she spits up is absolutely absurd. When I mentioned it to my pediatrician, she was extremely quick to blow it off and say "babies spit up. it's normal" Well... this isn't normal!!!!

SHe CONSTANTLY spits up. LIke at least every 15 minutes. And like HOURS after she eats. What the heck???

What can I do?

Sounds like what Trinity was going through back when we switched her formula. Is she experiencing any pain? Is her BM normal?

Even after she switched formulas Trinity would occasionally have days when she spit up alot, then other days not at all.

She fusses through every feeding. And she is constantly constipated.

I called the pediatrician today... I have had enough. I can't stand that she is constantly throwing up and so uncomfortable... not to mention all the laundry that comes along with it. LOL

Carlie had reflux, too. But hers was silent, and she didn't spit up much. But she would scream and cry whenever I tried to feed her. Part of it was b/c she couldn't tolerate powdered formula and part of it was reflux. So I switched her to RTF and the dr. prescribed Prevacid. But I totally know what you're going through! It's so frustrating when the dr. doesn't listen. Be persistent and follow your mommy instincts.

I'm wondering if Hayden has reflux.. he spits up after almost every feeding.. i think he may not like the formula though but man is it annoying! i have to keep a bib on him when we go out so i dont have to constantly change his clothes.. and if i have him laying down hours later he spits up and it goes all over his hair! like right now lol i'm about to give him a bath because he did it a few minutes ago..
i'm not sure if he's in pain though and his BM seem normal so who knows..i'm gonna ask my pedi though cuz i also dont think its right

Jessica, I hope you have better luck with your pedi than I did. My daughter had the same problems with spitting up when she was about Hayden's age. We knew it wasn't reflux because she wasn't showing signs of pain. She was just a frequent spitter. At first the doctor just blew it off, like "Babies spit up. No big deal." Until I kept going and bothering her enough that she recommended a formula change.

What kinda formula is he drinking? Powdered, RTF, or concentrate? Maybe he can't tolerate it and needs it in another form. I think that's part of what helped Trinity's spitting. I think the concentrate may have been too heavy for her little tummy, but the powder's been great.

He's on the powdered similac advance early shield.. maybe i should try the other forms then before switching completely?? hmm thats interesting..its just getting hard to live with, its literally after every feeding now..

Jessica - how much is he spitting up? Is it just after the feeding? Remember that a little bit of spit up actually looks like a lot more than it really is, being mixed with saliva.

With Kaylin's reflux, she spits up constantly, all day long... about every 15 minutes. And it soaks her clothes AND mine.

Your LO is so young still. Give his tummy some time... Try everything else you can before changing his formula.... even to a ready-to-feed or concentrate.
-sit up up more while he eats
-keep him sitting up-right for about 30 minutes following a feeding
-take it slow - stop him every ounce and give him a break for a few minutes
-burp him more frequently - at least twice a feeding


That is just my opinion, but I tried EVERYthing before switching her formulas.
