The doctor was really happy with that number, because it was 1lb 1oz weight gain in only 25 days. He still is not even in the 2 percentile on the growth charts but she said he is following his own curve and that is good.
Then, I asked her how they check for acid reflux in babies. She said the studies were invasive. She saw him barf so much in the hallway and knew that was associated with more barfing (I told her about all the other times associated with the previous feeding alone) and that he makes a face when he barfs sometimes like, "Ewww that tasted nasty!" So, she said she was going to put him on baby reflux medication. She wrote us a prescription for baby Zantac and told me to give him 1ml in the morning and 1ml at night. FINALLY!!! I have been thinking we needed reflux medication since 2-3 months old and they finally prescribed it!
We have an appointment on March 21st to see how he is doing weight wise again and to see how the Zantac is working for him. Then, we have the 6 month check up a few weeks after that. :)
I gave Brodie the first dose of medicine today at about 9:30am and about 5 minutes ago was the first time he spit up! I'm praying the medicine works great and in turn he gains a good amount of weight. We are supposed to continue the baby oatmeal 1x a day with him since he doesn't throw that up and go from there.
YAY for encouraging news!!!!
