View Full Version : advice please
i am just needing advice i bottle feed my 4 1/2 months old and have since birth (cos due to medical reasons couldnt breat feed) and he has been to many doctors and peadeatritions because every feed he throws up till he is due for his next feed he is on infasoy formula now the last doctor told me to put him on that and it has been a week and still throwing up... i just dont know what to do now as i have tryed everything... has anyone else experienced this and if so how long did it take to go away?
Is your bub on any medication for reflux?
Both my kids through up from one feed to the next up until 8mths, then it slowed down a bit. Thickened formula works for some babies, but otherwise if he is putting on weight, got lots of wet nappies and happy then there isn't to much to worry about.
Hope it starts to settle soon
well i think it is reflux but the doctors dont think it is because he doesnt scream often but i have also mentioned silent reflux is there anything to try from the chemist at all but he is very irritable during the day and wont sleep just cranky it is really frustrating me...
I would go to a different Dr to get a second or third opinion. My daughter wouldn't scream but would be forever grumpy and would not sleep at all during the day, as soon as she was put on Zantac she was happy and started sleeping during the day. The only thing that may slow the spews down is a thickened formula, medication will help the pain and descomfot.
Unfortulatly the throwing up will proberly continue until he is walking.
Hope this helps
thanks so very much.... was your daughter still putting on weight??? i will have to go to another doctor... THANKS again
Yes both my kids were still putting on weight. Is your son?
yes he is still putting on weight and looks fine im sure the dotors think im telling fibs.....
If you havn't already try the thinked formula or add Karicare food thickner to his existing formula. Keep going to you find a Dr that will take your concerns serious.
Good Luck and let me know how you go
