My son Dallas was born at 30 weeks (To see his story please visit my blog http://thesouthernjourney.blogspot.com/
) He is now 7 months old (5 adjusted) and he was diagnosed with reflux while he was in the NICU the neo doctor said he would "outgrow it" by the time he came home...well..he didn't and he is now on Zantac. He pediatrician said that the valve will be strong enough by now and we would see less spit up or crying. and neither has happened. If anything the spit has gotten worse to the point he is constantly hungry and very fussy. We usually have to do his laundry 2x a day.
A friend of mine suggested that he might be lactose intolerant and that it might not be reflux. While in the NICU and coming home he was breastfed but because I have hypothyroid and PCOS my milk production eventually dried out despite everything I did to bring it back up. I feel so guilty he is having these tummy troubles now that he's on formula
I am now trying a different medication and hopefully I can re-lactate because I honestly feel that is the only answer. If anyone has any sucess with that please let me know...
anyway as for the dairy allergy how many of you mommas have little ones that have this or been through this and it came out to be a allergy and not reflux? what did you do? did soy help? I also heard Soy has too much estrogen in it and its not good to give babies...any thoughts? Thanks <3
