Any Breastfeeding moms with heavy spitters?
I'm still ticked off about the appt we had with the GI where she recommended that I pump and bottle feed so we could do lots of rice cereal b/c my son is "skinny" he's in the 75th% for weight (90% for height so technically he's long and lean but by no means underweight and hasn't lost any). Anyway - I'm just wondering if anyone's GI has a better recommendation than that. I'm going to call her and suggest we try the caracream or maybe I should just screw it and try it anyway. UG

Lorenzo b.4/25/07 1 week in NICU w/ aspirate pneumonia from a reflux episode; diagnosed GERD at 9weeks; Used Zantac for 5months. Currently using Chinese Medicine and Craniosacral Therapy. GERD, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Sensory Processing Disorder. Ask me about breastfeeding a refluxer! Pic: day 5 in the NICU.
What is YOUR level of concern about the volume of spiting? If it isn't worrying you, do you need to do anything about it?

It's mostly that he's spitting up the medicine so that is a concern. The weight isn't a concern but the medicine spitting is :(

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
If you suck the meds up in a syringe and then put tiny amounts of it in the back of the mouth, you may be more successful.

I have not done this but have heard of other momma's using this trick. I was soo glad Jedd had a feeding tube, just pop it open push them meds in, flush, and done!!!! ;-)

He's not spitting it out when I give it - he's spitting up the delayed release stuff later. Like 2 or 3 hours after the dose I see the granules in there.
Check with your
doctor first!
