Going to the ER

Sophia is throwing up after every feeding now. Sad They said with her being so young to bring her in. Hopefully I can finally get some answers as to what is wrong with her!

Poor baby, keep us posted! When you say throwing up is it like actually vomitting or just spitting up?? I hope you get answers soon and she's feeling better.

She was actually projectile vomiting. Even while she was still on the breast. We are about to leave ER now. They said that she has really bad reflux....just as I expected! I am exhausted! I've gotten 7 hours of sleep since Monday night!

What a relief! Something you can treat... and hopefully when her reflux is under control, you'll BOTH get some sleep!!

I'm sorry the Dr. at your pediatrician didn't listen to your mama instincts and you ended up at the ER. Sad I'm glad you have a diagnosis now though and she can hopefully get better!

Glad you got a proper diagnosis this go 'round. What did they put her on?

They wouldn't put her on any medication at the er because they want me to follow up with my doctor so they can monitor her weight. I guess reflux babies typically stop gaining weight. I think the most common medication I've heard for babies is prevacid so I'm sure that is what they'll prescribe.

Glad you got an answer! Hoping the medication helps quickly and you both get some rest soon.
