Yesterday DS (age 14 weeks) spit up A LOT all day. He went down for his naps as usual, but woke up sooner than usual because of spit up. He also had a couple of incidents of choking (although they weren't severe). We're thinking this is reflux, but we're reluctant to take DS to the ped. because we're scared that she's going to tell us to put him on medication for it, which we really don't want to do if there are other options. This morning after he nursed we fed him some rice cereal (which he seems to love). I just called home (I work full-time), and my mom said that he's doing fine - no spit up - and he'd been sleeping for about 1/2 hour when I called. Do you think yesterday could have been some sort of a fluke? Maybe he was just having a bad day? Maybe it was something I ate? We had visitors at our house yesterday for the Fourth - I don't know if that could have something to do with it?
If you have any suggestions or words of wisdom, I'd love to hear them - I'm worried sick about poor DS.
