Need advice/suggestions on reflux
I have a 4 1/2 month old daughter who has reflux. Her father had relux and stomach problems when he was a baby and still has reflux. She has projectile vomit throughout the day. She will throw up from feeding time to feeding time. She chokes on her vomit too. We have tried EVERYTHING! Her pedi put her on zantac, then Axid, I have tried the rice in her formula. I was breastfeeding but stopped due to her reflux because she wouldn't latch on. I have tried reducing her amount that she eats. She typically eats 4oz every 3 hours sometimes every 2 1/2 hrs. So I reduced it to 3 oz. I use the similac altrium or whatever formula. Its for fussiness and spit up. Its a soy base formula. She is very cranky. She also gets very anxious right before she throws up. I have her sit up for 1/2 an hr after feeding. She sleeps in an upright position as well. I just feel like something else is going on. Nothing else has worked. Please help. Has anyone else been through the same thing? Any advice is welcome! Thank You, Brailyn's mom

you story sounds almost identical to my son's. We tried everything and I keep calling the doctor to try to do anything to help my little one. After the 5th appointment they have now sent us to a GI Doctor, you may want to ask your doctor about that.
Check with your
doctor first!
