Yucky Reflux

Well, I had to take the Cheeky Monster to the Dr. today. He'd been spitting up quite a bit the past couple of days. I told the Dr. that he's always spit up a little bit, but it's gradually getting worse. Her thoughts on the matter were that he's developed acid reflux. IMO, I don't really think that this is the case, but I'm going to go on her word at it and start adding a bit of cereal to each of his bottles throughout the day to see if that helps. I think that his spitting up has to do with his bowel issues. He has had horrible constipation problems since he was 15days old. I noticed that when he goes for more than a day without having a BM that he tends to spit up alot more. So, that is where I believe that he is getting the spit up from. Normally after he has a BM he's fine and no spit up for awhile afterwards. Who knows though I may be wrong, but we'll see. I'm supposed to call her on Monday morning with an update to how he's handling the cereal and if his constipation seems worse then as well.

There could also be another reason to this now that I come to think about it. A couple of days ago he was really fussy and I just chaulked it up to teething, b/c he had his hands in his mouth constantly. Any way, he had diarrhea I think it was Monday with EVERY feeding. That is also the day that his spitting up seemed to get worse. I'm now wondering if maybe he has a touch of the stomach flu or what the problem is. Today he's been alot happier than the previous days, so I maybe right. Guess we'll just see who in the end is right me or the Dr.....and IMO I know my child better than a Dr. so more than likely it'll be me, but we'll see.

  1. You know your baby better than any doctor. If you're seeing a correlation between his constipation and spitting up, then there is one. Does the doctor think that's not possible?
