Kaylin's spit up has been DRASTICALLY reduced. She used to spit up constantly, all day long, about every 10-15 minutes. My days were filled with wiping up puke puddles and more laundry than you can fathom.
Now, she might spit up once a day. ONCE! It's a miracle!
I am VERY pleased with how that is going.

However, it's not all sunshine and roses.

She is still suffering from the pain of reflux. I'm also pretty sure she has some gas issues going on. Today, her tummy was bloated like a starving child in a 3rd world country. I got some Mylicon tonight and gave it to her with her bedtime bottle. She is still fussing through feedings, arching her back, pushing the bottle away. This has actually gotten worse, which I think is because of the added gas. (The Gentlease helped this issue before.)

It is really exhausting - she is constantly hungry because she barely eats 4 ounces at a time. But feeding her is like wrangling an angry bull!!

I gave it a week - but I am calling the pediatrician back on Monday to see what else I can do. This is just maddening.

Oh yeah...I know the PITA that is switching formulas and trying to find th right one while your baby suffers in the meantime. Do you think she needs meds for her reflux? Let us know what the doctor says. I hope she gets some relief soon.
