Reflux and 2 week check up

Yep, Lukus has reflux. I figured it would probably happen as all my babies so far have had it but kept *hoping* he wouldn't end up with it. The last week has been a nightmare! He screams in pain and spits up every time I feed him and was even starting to fuss while feeding him cause his tummy was bothering him. Nothing I did would help and he would just have to scream till he fell asleep. We are going on maybe a couple hours of sleep all night every night for the past week. Momma is worn out, Lukus is warn out, and daddy is warn out. We had his 2 week check up yesterday and explained the symptoms to the pedi and she agreed that it sounded like reflux. She wanted us to try all the non-medical treatments before putting him on meds till we told her we already were and if anything he has just been getting worse. So he is now on generic form of prevacid. He had his first dose last night and I'm hoping that it starts working soon because I am ready to have my happy chill baby back. When his tummy isn't bothering him he really is the cutest most chill baby. The poor little guy got circed yesterday too. He wasn't happy at all yesterday but he seems a little better today. Oh and he is up to 5#1oz so basically back up to birth weight! I think if he didn't have the reflux issues he probably would have been back up to birth weight if not a little past his birth weight.

I am sorry he has reflux and no one is getting any sleep! I hope the meds kick in soon and you both get some much needed rest!

I think we ar dealing with the same thing, she is on a special formula for spit up but now it's turned into vomiting at every feed and it's getting worse. My dr suggested one of those nap nannys. They are 100.00 and people also suggested fisher price rock and sleeper things so I might try that first. We go next week and will probally be put on meds too.

Hope he feels better soon!

I'm sorry you are going through the same thing. I hope they can get her on meds and you guys can get some sleep as well.
