My son is 4 1/2 months old, and weighs 17.7 lbs. He is exclusively breastfed. Since he was 2 months old, he started SUFFERING from acid reflux. He spits up and vomits constantly. His pediatrician put him on Zantac to break up the acid, and I don't think that the medicaiton is helping. Because of his large spit up problem, the pediatrician recommended I start him on solids (rice cereal). I was just wondering, will starting solids interfere with my breastfeeding? How many times per day should I nurse him? Yesterday he nursed only 5 times during the day (he sleeps through the night) and for some reason I feel that wasn't enough.
p.s. Even with the constant projectiles, he is gaining weight.
