After visiting with my pediatrician yesterday and speaking with a lactation specialist today I have a much better insight into why my daughter is spending most of her day screaming.
Yes she has reflux. However, the lc did a feed and weigh and determined that she was only transfering an ounce and a half in a 45 minute feeding.
I was told that she has a very weak suck and is swallowing a lot of air when she eats. Obviously since she isn't transfering much she is also hungery which explains why she seems to want to eat all the time.
It was reccommend to me by both the doctor and the lc that we try occupational therapy to strengthen her muscles.
Has anyone tried OT? Does it help? Or is this one of those things that we just have to wait and let her get bigger and stronger?
As always any adivice is appreciated.
