About a month ago I took my LO to the pediatrician because of his misery. He was almost always screaming in pain, and nothing we could do would soothe him. The ped thought he had reflux, but I was reluctant to start giving a 3 week old reflux meds when I suspected that maybe I had an oversupply problem which can present as reflux.
I went to an LC and yes I have a tremendous oversupply problem. We have to fix this problem for over a month, but with little to no improvement (12 hour block feeding, different positions, sudafed, sage tea). The last thing left is birth control which I am very reluctant to go on.
Now I think on top of the oversupply my boy probably really does have reflux, which could be aggravated by the excess milk in his system.
My question or plea is to others who have dealt with these issues together. How did you know your baby had reflux? My son does not have the typical signs: he's doubled his birth weight and doesn't spit up much.
What meds did you use?
When your oversupply calmed down did your child's reflux?
I am really debating weaning because I can't get the OS under control and if it's contributing to my baby's non-stop pain, I can't see continuing.
