Fussy doesn't even do it justice.. I have a baby with reflux!!!!!!!! It's been the most difficult thing to deal with, the lack of sleep has even been easier to cope with then this. Basically this is how it goes... baby cries because she is hungry so I feed her as soon as she is done she has to stay upright for 30 minutes then she cries HARD.. the kind of cry like when they get shots. She will continue to cry for about 25 minutes because the acid is coming up and burning her throat. It has actually gotten so bad she has vomitted blood... and let me tell you for a first time mom, that is a very scary sight at 2 in the morning.
We have tried zantac, and prevacid however her tummy doesn't tolorate them and she vomits them up. We use mylicon drops, gripe water, and now gaviscon. We bounce her, sing to her, rock her.. but nothing really stops the crying.
There is no worse feeling in the world then to know your child is in pain and you cannot do anything for them.
What makes it worse...... is thats not the only problem we are dealing with... she also has all of the symptoms of overproduction.. .... You see the milk factory sometimes goes into overload, and makes to much resulting in a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance so my baby girl only gets the water fat free milk and not the fattening milk wich just loads her intestines up with lactose resulting in alot of gas, explosive green stools, a very fussy baby, she screams while she is eating sometimes.
I want to be there for EVERY minutes of my baby girls life however sometimes I just wish I could fast forward to the 3 month mark (the pedi says it will be better then) because I know my baby wont be in pain anymore.
