I'm at my wits end here, I need recommendations for a paed GI in Sydney. My DS (5 months) has silent reflux, he's on Losec (15mg per day) and elecare for CMPI
I've seen two different paeds now, one was a jerk and the other one was nice enough, but they both want me to wean DS off the Losec My GP is pretty awesome though, I haven't been back to see her since seeing the second Paed but I know if I ask for a referral to someone else she'll give me one no questions and do whatever she can to help.
I don't know wether it's me thinking more into it or if it's instinct telling me this but I just feel like there's something more to this feeding issue than just reflux. I didn't want to reduce his Losec dose but just to prove a point to the Dr's I reduced it to 10mg yesterday and things arn't much fun here today, he's feeding is worse and his sleep isn't so great and he's just not happy. Normally he's pretty happy and sleeps well.
He's had blood tests, urine tests and a stool sample taken and all of those look 'normal' apparently. I just don't know what else to do.
We've taken him to the CHN for her to look at his feeding and of course he behaved and drank all his bottle only fussing once for a burp. We've also seen a speech therapist to look at his tounge and jaw etc and see if this was an issue. She said there was no problem there. She did witness what he was like when trying to feed and told me she's seen this problem many times with reflux and/or a CMPI. Unfortunately there wasn't much more she can do cause all the things she was going to suggest I do to help with the feed I am already doing.
