My name is Casey. My son, Austin, is 8 weeks old today. On Thursday, January 22nd we rushed Austin to the ER because he couldn't hold down ANY fluids. After calling the children's clinic we use, and them having us switch formula so many times and none agreeing with him, we decided it best to take him. Once admitted we learned b/c of them making us switch formula so much, and from not agreeing to let him have an earlier appointment than his 2 month one, which was already set, he was so dehydrated he almost died.
They did several tests on him including an upper GI we were informed that he has moderate/severe reflux and they put him on Zantac and Reglan and switched his formula yet again to Isomil Soy Formula. He doesn't seem to be agreeing with it either, nor do the meds seem to be helping much..what should I do? I'm so scared cuz I don't wanna lose my baby! He cries so bad cuz he's in so much pain in his stomach yet the docs refuse to let us give him anything but mylicon gas drops.
Is there anything anyone else out there has tried that has worked? A certain formula? We've tried Parent's Choice, Enfamil Lipil, Enfamil Gentlease, Enfamil Lacto-free, Similac Advance, Similac Alumentium, and now Isomil Soy Formula. I have a very severe nut allergy and am soy intolerant so idk what kind of formula I can use. Plz somebody help! My husband and I are desperate for advice and cannot find a single doctor to help us in any helpful way.
