I have a 4 month old that has acid reflux. She is now on Prilosec to control that. She does not handle soy and I am using nutramigen as her formula. I have tried Enfamil, Enfamil Gentlease, Enfamil Soy and now nutramigen. When her pediatrician put her on Prilosec she never ran any tests just took my work for it. She listened to the signs Caitlyn was having and said she has acid reflux. Is this normal for a doctor to just take a parents word for it??? The pediatrician put her on Prilosec and had me start nutramigen at the same time. To me I should have done one at a time to see if she had acid reflux or lactose intolerant. How do you find out if she is lactose intolerant? Is this something that the pediatrician will take a parents word for also??View Thread
Hi Has your daughter tried giving her gas drops? She may have a stomach ache? Does the baby straighten her legs while she is crying? I have heard that babies can sense the sun going down and they call it sundowner syndrome. They just grow out of it. My oldest daughter who is almost 6 was the same way. She would start at 6 every night and just scream. Nothing really made her happy unless I was carrying her on her stomach and pacing the house. It would last an hour and sometimes longer. Hope this helps!View Thread
