Reflux – not a family tradition that I wanted Evelyn to carry on. Both Trenton and Charlotte had really bad reflux, and we were hoping that it would skip Evelyn.
But it didn’t.
I took Evelyn to the pediatrician last week for forceful vomiting (many times while still nursing), crying, coughing, and wheezing while nursing, and all around crankiness. Once we got to the pediatrician’s office, I also found out that the reflux is adversely affecting Evelyn’s weight. She’s not losing weight, but she’s not gaining as much as she should.
The doctor prescribed some medicine, and we are really hoping that it will work and that we can get more happy (or at least non-cranky) moments.
And to my bloggy friends: I’m trying my best to keep up with you, but trying to keep a mad baby not quite so mad hasn’t lent itself to much free time. I hope to have some more time soon!
