Having a fussy newborn is HARD ...hard. I don't have time to shower let alone blog (It took me several days to finish this small post) We believe Katelyn has acid reflux, which we are treating this week. The first time we took her to the Dr they checked her physically and her weight, which was good. They said probably just colic and she will grow out of it. The term "colic" doesn't sit right with me when your baby scream cries in pain after/during feedings, chokes during feedings, spits up, hates being laid flat, makes loud breathing noises and only quiet when she nurses until she chokes again. If it was just fussy gas ok but not the other symptoms. She literally will cry on and off for 5 hours straight. We weren't even able to make it through her newborn photos :(.
We went back to the DR this week after a really bad weekend of episodes and they agreed to give us liquid Zantac to try. We have been on it for 4 days now, small improvement but not completely. Sadly, I will probably stop breast feeding also incase its a sensitivity or allergy and start her on hypoallegentic. It's hard not know what is wrong with your baby and the postpartum hormones are no joke! To top it off colds all through the house, including me praying she doesn't get it!
This is why I haven't and wont be around much till we get through this...AND WE WILL!
