Parents who have babies with acid reflux.. Question? Mama BooBoo(: 1 child; South Carolina 618 posts
28th Apr '13

My son was diagnosed with acid reflux when he was about a month old. He continuously spits up, and I am not talking light spitting up, I mean projectile goes in your hair, and everywhere ! He is 5 months now, and they tried zantac on him, which didn't work. My son has a veryyy hard time drinking thin milk, or taking thin medicines. He gets choked so easily. So I got approval from the doctor to using the baby rice cereal, which he has been on and its the only thing that keeps him from spitting up. I have tried SEVERAL times to cut him off the cereal completely. Every time I do , he spits up everywhere. I have to change his clothes up to 4 times a day, and a bib doesn't help because like I said when he spits up, it goes everywhere..
Anyways, he has a gastro appointment this Tuesday. just curious to know, mamas who have been through this what did they do at the appointment? Did they take x - rays or anything like that ? Like what did your whole appointment consist of? Thank you for any responses!

I didnt have a special appt but we took dd to the er once because her dr wouldn't listen to me and she got an ultrasound. We also started baby food early (3.5 months) because it was thick enough for her to keep down but thin enough to where she didnt choke. Once she started solid food the reflux went away completly. Good luck!!

Thank you! I have started my son on baby food as well, since the doctor told me to besides the rice cereal. He started at 4 months, but of course I still give him the milk. I try not to do the rice cereal in it now that he is eating solids but every time I stop he still spits up :/ hopefully they can find out what's wrong with him !

Yeah we did oatmeal cereal (dd had constipation issues) and we had to give her oatmeal before a bottle everytime or the oatmeal in her nighttime bottle until she was on solid food.
