11 WEEK OLD NOT EATING
My daughter is 11 weeks and for the past week we have had trouble getting her to eat much. We have added rice cereal to her bottles and she is on Prevacid. I am very worried and her pediatrician doesn't seem to be much help. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

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.
When you say you are having trouble getting her to eat much, do you mean that she doesn't seem interested in feedings, she is eating less than usual at feedings, or she is actively avoiding/fighting feedings? The more detail you can provide about the situation, the easier it is for us to offer suggestions.

Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this summer...fail. Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
Yes, please provide more details. My DD had a feeding aversion (nursing/bottle). She associated pain with eating and refused unless she was asleep. We saw an OT and GI doctor for help.
