Infant with Reflux

I have a almost 5 month old baby boy with reflux. He was born 13 weeks early. The doctor has him on previcid and it has not seemed to work. We have him on the Similic Advance formula. He does ok the first half of his feed, then the rest of his feed he will fight eating. Sometimes after he burps it gets better. He spits up after almost every feed. He is gaining weight. I was wondering if anyone else has had these problems and what worked for you. I am thinking of calling the doctor and putting him on a different formula. He also will cry...

Tips for Constipated Infant?

Hi Mamas, My 6 week old is gassy and constipated. I have tried everything the pediatrician has asked me to do. Today they tell me to "just keep doing what you are doing" which is not working. At their suggestion, I have been putting corn syrup in a bottle 1X/day and used rectal thermometer w/ petroleum jelly, warm washcloth on belly too. He is exclusively breastfed, eats well and is gaining weight. He has not had a BM since Tuesday and this has been going on for three weeks. He has one to two BM's a week and doc tells me this is normal. ...

Baby Not Taking Bottle

Hi Moms! I have a 11 weeks old baby that refuses bottles. I went back to work part time 3 weeks ago and my husband has to listen to her scream the whole time I am gone. She had no problem breastfeeding but seems to have a bad gag reflex. She wont take any pacifiers either. We have tried lots of different kinds of bottles and nothing worked. He is now feeding her with the syringe out of the motrin bottle. It is messy and she does not get a lot but at least it calms her down for a while. I would appriciate any other ideas you have. ...

Playtex Drop Ins

Anyone out there use playtex drop ins? How do you feel about them? I am considering trying them for baby #2 thinking that it will be less cleaning of bottles (hubby is not much help!). I will likely use a few different brands of bottles (like dr browns and avent in past.) If you have used them, can you mix the formula and water in the pouch itself or do you have to premix the formula then put it in the pouch? Just curious, thanks!
