Reflux? OALD? Gas?
Hey ladies! I had wanted my next post to be my birth story, but my "easy" baby is changing on me! We dealt with some pretty severe silent reflux with my first and I was so happy that this time seemed different. Now I am not sure...here are the symptoms, so ladies, help me with a plan of action, or tweak what I am currently trying.
painful crying - usually evenings (which I just associated with his fussy time) but now it's during the day and mornings too
spitting(massively) up if fed more than one side at a feed
arching back(not all the time)
sounding like he aspirated something
a couple of other things I think may be unrelated, but here goes:
painful passing gas
painful straining bowel movements
NO constipatin though.
My plan as of now is to recline nurse, allow let-downs to spray into a towel, burp frequently, cut back caffeine and chocolate. I am already only feeding one side per feeding - he started that all on his own. We don't go back to the Dr. until the 17th of this month. So I don't know what kind of weight gain we have, but he is growing out of his newborn stuff slowly. I do feed on demand.
I am not thinking diet just yet, but if it is reflux, chocolate and caffeine aggravate it.
