|I haven't noticed more restlessness. Basically, I have not noticed any change, good or bad, in her night waking.
I'm very confused at this point. I don't know what I'm missing. The Prevacid, even with the Buffer Babies, doesn't seem to be doing anything. We've seen some improvement in her amount of spitup and nighttime cough/congestion - which I attribute to the Nutramigen. But she's still fussing with her feedings and waking up all night. She still has a rash around her eye - going on a month and a half now.
We tried her on the high PPI dose as recommended by Marci-Kids - 27 mg/day. But there is no difference from when we give her the lower dose - 18 mg/day. In fact neither seems to be doing any good so I want to stop it altogether.
With the Buffer Babies I have noticed more gas but I'm not sure if it's actually causing her discomfort. I called my GI to get some feedback on BB/Caracream but haven't heard back yet. I'm almost not even interested anymore...I feel like we need to move on to something other than PPIs entirely. They have never really done her any good.
I guess I'm thinking maybe her MSPI is responsible for the fussy feedings and night wakings. Perhaps she is one of these babies that really needs to be on Elecare/Neocate. But how would I ever get her to drink it?
Another possibility is additional allergies, I guess. Maybe she's allergic to corn, which is also in her formula. Or maybe our dog.
Who knows? I am so lost. What do we do? Where do we go from here? I feel like I'm spinning my wheels. We've tried so many things and ultimately nothing has helped. And the possibilities and combinations of what could be bothering her are really endless...how are we ever narrow it down? Meanwhile I can't even get my GI to call me back.
