4 month pedi appt
January 7, 2013 at 8:32 PM
So my dd had her 4 month check up and she confirmed she has mild reflux. She recommended rice cereal in her bottle! 2 tsp. per 4 oz bottle to thicken it so she doesn't spit up. Now I didn't really wanna do rice cereal so idk? She said if it doesn't work to call thurs and she'll call in a Rx for Zantac. I already tried the cereal and baby seems content. I don't know??? I understand its nutritionally void, but if it'll help her spit up, why not? Should I do the Zantac or cereal????

    Idk. I had to use roce with my first (also a spitter) to help him keep his formula down but really it seemed like it didn't really work and then caused major constipation issues. I've never used zantac though so i'm not sure

    What kind of formula are you giving her? I personally wouldn't do cereal either unless all other options had been exhausted.

    Soy- and she doesn't think it's a soy allergy. But even just a little you think could be a problem? And what would the negative effects of a couple tsp of it be?

    Eh that's a hard decision mama. I personally would do the cereal, see if it works first. If not then get the Rx. IMO Rx's should only be a last resort, but again just my opinion.

    I say research it a lot before making a decision. Does she have a dairy allergy?

    See I'm not sure- her first 3 weeks of life she was in the nicu and I was pumping exclusively. And then she started having symptoms that made the nurses think shw wasnt tolerating something in my diet- and I was concerned about my meds so I stopped pumping, and they started the soy. So idk?

    Ya that's prob what I'll do/ I already gave her the cereal in her bottle tonight she tolerated it-- so well see. If she's still having bad reflux issues ill try the Rx

    I was asking because 50% or so of children who have a milk protein allergy also have a soy allergy.

    I think you should listen to the Dr. I would rather give my baby cereal before a prescription drug.
