if you have ever had a sick baby, you know how hard it is on the entire family. 

my dd has severe silent reflux and was not eating because of it.  now that she's on zantac, she's no longer in pain but she's still not eating well.  this is so frustrating because i want my baby to be happy and healthy...plus i'm so effing sick of going to the hospital!  i'm currently logging all of her feedings so i have something to show her doctor...i want to log a few more hours before i call.  but so far, in 12 hours she's eaten for a total of 45 minutes.  now i have to wonder if this is her normal eating pattern, a side effect of the zantac, or there's something else going on.  i will take ANY advice that anyone has...

my youngest had silent reflux...zantac CAN have an effect on the appetite....I'd call the dr and let them know....maybe they can adjust the dosage or suggest something else.  My dd had issues the first few days and they didn't change the med but tapered it down some and then slowly brought up the dosage.  hugs and prayers....been there and it is hard.

just wanted to show some support...i'm sorry for the pain you're going through. i hope everything's okay with your little one as she adjusts to the meds. you're doing a great job keeping organized. my niece has had type 1 diabetes for years and i see how much work it is for my sister not only to keep her healthy, but to keep detailed records for the docs.

All of my kids had reflux. They had a second medication along with the zantac, It was called raglen. They took the two together and that helped. I still had to put cereal in bottles for them and was warned that if I breastfed I would need to eat a very bland diet myself.

I refuse to raise SHEEPLE. Instead, I prefer to raise INDEPENDANT, STRONG WILLED, BRAVE people.

 I have a friend who's DD is on that medication, and I don't believe it really messed much with her eating, but it totally messed up her sleeping habits. 

That little girl will eat the world if you let her!  Her son however, eats next to nothing.  Every child is different - mine goes through phases.  One day he'll eat everything in sight, then he'll go a week refusing to eat anything but grahm crackers.  I would call the doc, but don't panic.

You're doing the right thing by keeping records and talking to her Dr. Much support to you though.
