Project BG3: Week 2 – Tummy Troubles

September 4, 2014 BG3, Project BG3 6

Sigh, I was seriously hoping BG3 wouldn’t follow in BG2’s footsteps and get all reflux on us, but it’s starting to look like she’s got it. The first week she ate so well and barely spit anything up. This week, however, she’s started eating less at each feeding, she’s been extra fussy (which I’m attributing to a lot of gas), and she’s had a few episodes of total vomiting.

We went through this whole ordeal with BG2 where she would basically throw up a ton after like every feeding and we had to switch her formula to the kind for acid reflux, which helped some, but she still has episodes. Right now, BG3 isn’t throwing up at every feeding, but I’m distraught. I’m constantly worrying if she’s getting enough nutrients and it breaks my heart to see her so fussy and crying all the time. You can tell she’s uncomfortable with all that gas.

Half the time I’m scared to feed her too much because I don’t want her to throw up and the other half of the time I’m worried because she’ll go hours w/o eating and then only eat and ounce or two. Sigh. Here’s hoping she’ll eat more this coming week since babies are supposed to go through a growth spurt during the second week.

    Awwwwwww! Both my girls had stomach issues too, it sucks. My second one had acid reflux and was allergic to dairy, soy and egg products. No formula worked for her so I had to breastfeed her until she was one, then it was almond milk.
    The thing that was a life saver for me with the tummy issues was to boil some chamomile (no honey) and give her 2-3 oz. 2 times a day to help with gas. Hopefully you find something that helps 🙂
