He has been already told he has acid reflux, he has been on his meds. for about a month now. He still isn't getting better. I have placed him in his swing after feedings, his poop still has a tint of green in it. Some times when i feed him he cries when the bottle is in his mouth. When i was making bottle he was crying like he was in pain so i made him a bottle thinking he was really hungry not even an oz in he cries. I have stopped feeding him and tried to burp him, i have gave him gas drops. He spits up a lot it's stringy the best way i can describe. They have him on a soy formula. I've checked diapers, i have check his clothes took of any wet ones from spit up and i've tried to burp him. Some times he is hard to burp so i place him down for a few then try again. i don't know what i am doing wrong?

YOU aren't doing anything wrong. You are doing everything right to try and help your son. It could still be the formula or it could just be the reflux not yet under control.... or it could be something else. I know that answer isn't exactly helpful because I can't tell you what it IS or how to fix it. I just know the frustration of a new mom with a baby and wanted to reassure you that YOU are doing right by your baby by trying to figure out the best way to help him.

My son had reflux too. For him, nursing was his comfort, so he nursed a LOT. For other babies with reflux eating hurts more, so they don't want too.

And that's all I've got except I hope you can get things situated soon for you and your son! ♥
