LO is 7 weeks and for the last week she has been spitting up way more often . We burp multiple times during feedings , concentrate on upright during and after and are using gripe water . Last night i elevated the head of the bassinett slightly. She still spits up 1 to 2 times after feedings and gets very fussy about an hour after eating. Lately she has been eating less around 2oz and sometimes eating a full bottle 3.5 oz. About an hour after feeding she wakes up screaming like she's in pain which only lasts about 10 minutes or so.
She has also been very gassy , has the hiccups a lot and has had fewer dirty diapers ( 0 to 1 per day) and many pee diapers. We are thinking maybe we should switch to try out gentlease formula. Shes been on enfamil newborn since birth (supplementing and now exclusively ) so why symptoms now? Her next appointment with the MD is a little over a week. I'm going to put a call into her doctor today but its Saturday so I might not hear back.
For those of you who have a LO with acid reflux did they give meds ? Did they help ? Any other tips?
I also worry that maybe she's not gaining enough weight. She was 9# 22 inches at one month , she's long and lean... She definitely can't afford to loose weight.
