We increased LM’s zantac amount by a little a few days ago. For a day it went well, but then it didn’t seem to be working as well anymore. I was told to give it 3-4 days to see how it goes. Thursday night though, while hubs was feeding him he threw up. LM throws up occasionally when he has too much in his stomach or because of the reflux. Hubs woke me up from sleeping (I had gone to bed) to help him bathe LM since it was in his hair and everything. That was fun to wake up to. Then I went to pick him up from daycare on friday afternoon. He was fine, I put him in his car seat (which was an hour after he ate) and he threw up again. It was all over his outfit and in his car seat. LM normally doesn’t throw up that much and doesn’t normally do it that much in 24 hours so I called the doctor’s office when we got home.
I first talked to a nurse who took all my information down. She being just a nurse didn’t seem to give me a lot of direction, just that I should call and get an appointment with this weekend thing my doctor’s group has. So I called in and got an appointment and we went over this morning at 9am. The doctor’s visit seemed quick, but I guess cause we got right to the point and I had given them all the info that was in the computer already. Basically we switched LM from zantac to prevacid. I am hoping the medicine change will help him to feel better and give us a calmer feed. So *fingers crossed* LM also got weighed again which I enjoy. I guess being a data person I like having the data points. On Oct 20 he was 12lbs and 13 ounces and today 9 days later he is 13 pounds 6.5 ounces. So I guess I don’t have to worry about him losing weight.
