MOMMA 2 MYRA BORN MAY 1 ST AT 4 MONTHS DEVELOPED STOMACHE PAINS BUT HAS ALWAYS SPIT UP A LOT
starting solids
I took myra in for her six month checkup and just lost a lb since are follow up two weeks ago she hasnt really been taking bottles a whole alot but has been content so i didnt have much concern over it till they said she was losing weight so we decided to go ahead and try solids which scared me cus we just got to a point where she was a happy playful baby again she loved the peaches we tryed (she doent tolerated cereral we tryed that we she wasnt tolerated formula) but with 15 minutes of eating them she was screaming in pain again after trying for an hour and half to calm her i caved in and give her reglan which helps her but if she atkes for them a couple of days its causes tummy pains to we go back to gi on the 14th i think she has some digestion issues we done an upper gi about three weeks ago and it showed nothing i really dont know where to go with her eating solids and i dont like just tryin things to see if she can handle it

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
It really is trial and error with many of these kids. It seems that there are a few things that are a little easier on their tummies to start, such as pears, sweet potatoes, and squash.

Has your dd had any other testing done yet? Is she MSPI? Is there any history of food allergies/intolerances in the family? Is the pooping normal?

What kind of formula and how much formula is she taking per day? I believe that the amount recommended is 26-32 oz/pay. Is she on any meds besides reglan?

ethan's mom

Mom to Ethan, born 4/23/08. Diagnosed with Reflux at about 1 month, started medicating with Zantac, which wasn't helpful for us. At about 2.5 months, we started on Prevacid, twice a day, and that is working much better.
Ethan is breastfed and has a few solids that he is enjoying very much.
Here are a couple of things we have tried that are working for us. Hopefully there is something here that will help Myra.

Ethan would immediately vomit any of the store bought rice cereals, and I couldn't get him to eat Oat cereal. I had read that once they are six months, they can eat homeade cereals, which are from whole grains and less processed. I grind up oats, or brown rice, to a flour like consistency in the blender, and then cook it in boiling water on the stove. The ratio is one cup of water to 1/4 cup of grains, and this will make enough cereal for a couple of days. If it gets too lumpy, I puree it in the blender.

As was said before, we have had success with pears, sweet potatoes and squash, as well as avocado. I make all of the baby food, which is super easy, but we did have success with store bought pears.

It really is trial and error, but these have worked for us. Also, I'd ask your doctor about preparing your own cereals, becuase the store bought are iron fortified.
