Just wondering if those with more reflux experience can chime in on if that's what's happening here. LO is having problems spitting up large amounts of milk. Definetly not just normal spit up. It's so much I sometimes wonder if she's really throwing up. It happened when she was about 1.5 weeks for the first time and a week later it's now happening about every other day. Usually just once a day. Other times she has normal spit up. But when she has these big ones it comes through her nose and leaves HUGE puddles. Also, there are other times (usually after) that she makes gagging/I'm about to throw up faces, but nothing comes up. And she sounds like she choking and gagging when she spits up. And looks uncomfortable. And usually likes to be held upright and seems like her tummy hurts a lot. She's gaining plenty of weight. At first I thought maybe she was just getting my milk too fast and couldn't handle it, but my milk doesn't seem to be drowning her anymore and she's continuing to have problems. Sometimes it's 20 minutes after a feeding. Sometimes 1-2 hours later.
Dr. thought it could be reflux, but said just watch her. She'd only done it once when we saw him, Now we don't go back for a couple months. I'm wondering if that's what going on and if there's something I can do to help her? He talked about medicine, but said they don't start that this young. I try to keep her calm and rested after nursing and then put her upright as I burp her and just hold her for a while after each time. But I'm not sure what else I can do. Is this reflux? Or something else going on?
