Reflux

We went to the doctor yesterday and Ryan Jay was diagnosed with reflux. We're really glad to know whats been bothering him. It explains the trouble with feedings, the gagging and painful burps and waking up crying in pain, and the bad ride home from ricketts glen he had (sorry small group peeps!). Poor little guy! He has a prescription for zantac now and we have some things to do to help him feel better. He's already a happier baby, today while he was wide awake he smiled really big at Tim! Now I have to work on getting a picture of it!

we had the same problem with maddie, about a month after she came home she just got horribly cranky, it was like day and night and for about a week i kept saying "something is wrong" and i finally took her to the doctor. she went from so easy & relaxed to uncomfortable and irritable. they told us reflux is highly common in preemies and put her on zantac too. in a few days she went back to being happy and comfortable and just herself. it was such a relief to understand and feel like we were helping her. she was on the medication for about 2 months and then we slowly weaned her off and she hasn't need it since. so glad ryan is happy again.

So how do you explain Tim's trouble with feedings, the gagging and painful burps and waking up crying in pain, and the bad ride home from Rickett's Glen (sorry small group peeps)?
How do you explain THAT?
