My LO is about to turn 5 months old. I was really hoping to make it 6 months (at least) of exclusive breast feeding. She was a little more than 5 weeks premature and has had sever reflux since she was born. It used to be OK and she would sleep pretty well at night, but for the past month or so the gas has gotten so bad that we are up every hour with gas and crying. No medicine is working. The doctor is now saying that I need to start solid foods in order to keep the acid down. I'm frustrated. I don't know that either of us are ready for that yet, she isn't taking any interest in our food yet or anything. Does anyone have any other suggestions of how to work through this? Has anyone else had this problem? I'm afraid that if we start solids too early then she is going to wean earlier than I would like. I don't know what to do and I thought I would reach out for some help. Please let me know if you have any advice!
