We went to the doctors today. Within 60 seconds he diagnosed bad reflux. Two big cues - excessive weight gain (went from bw of 7 2 to 10 14 at 6 weeks) and hoarse voice. Lots of people think reflux leads to poor weight gain. He explained the contant need to nurse is due to the bm soothing the burn of the acid. The hoarseness is the acid burning the vocal cords We are to limit her bottles of bm to 2 1/2 ounces so as not to cause tummy spill over (not sure what to do when I nurse as I cannot measure). Started Zantac three times per day. In addition, I am continuing to sleep with her on me until the symptoms let up for her. Makes me want to cry that acid is burning her. Poor little girl, Hope the medicine works quickly.
