What's next if neocate doesnt help...
DD has been on neocate for almost two weeks this coming tuesday and so far I haven't seen any change. If anything, her spit up seems worse. It is now coming up through her nose. Does this mean she might not have a milk allergy and it is strictly reflux? She was on Nutramigen before this (from about 2 months old until almost 5 months old). I am just so frustrated at this point. We just switched GI doctors (he is the one who put her on neocate). I wasn't that thrilled with him, but believe it or not, there are not too many pedi gi's around where I live. I am just so frustrated at this point. I just want her to feel better, which I'm sure you all can relate to. Do we just ride it out at this point and hope the reflux gets better in the next few months. I already mentioned this before, but she is on 15 mg prevacid in the morning and 2 ml zantac at night which has definitely helped with the pain.

Have you tried adding a little cereal to the bottle to help the reflux? That's the first thing our GI dr had us try, even before we started heavy doses of meds.

Hi there. I responded to the post called "New here, need help with DD's symptoms." If you haven't read it, some of that info could be helpful. Are you giving her the Prevacid solutabs? They contain dairy. She could be reacting to that if she has a milk allergy or intolerance.
