My daughter was diagnose with Acid Reflux when she was a month old, and she's almost 6 months. They told us to use a tablespoon of rice cereal to each ounce of formula. We've been doing that & it doesn't work. She continues to spit up constantly - I have to change her & my clothes up to 3 times a day. There are times when she turns bright red, gags, or coughs just to get it out. I've told all 3 of the Dr's she's had [my husband's in the military, so we had to move when she was 2 1/2 mo's old] .. and they all keep telling me "she'll grow out of it, she's a happy spitter". She doesn't seem happy when this happens - but in general she's a happy baby. Normally - we're against medicine unless it's required for health reasons [such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc]. But I was just wondering if any other mom's had this problem? Did the rice cereal work for you, or did you end up going on medicine for it? And is there a way to get the Pediatrician to listen to me? Sorry for all the questions, i'm just so worried about her.
Thanks so much!!
