Ok so my problem is that my 6 month old daughter is underweight. She has severe reflux which landed her in the hospital on a feeding tube for 5 days when she was 2 months old. She also has a dairy allergy and is on neocate formula. She just hit 12 lbs but is 50th percentile for height and head. She is VERY smart and active. Not behind at all. I can not get her to eat more then 2-3 ounces a feeding and usually only 15 total a day. I have tried everything and now doc has me making formula with more calories. I feel terrible because she has no interest in eating and the docs are telling me if she isn't eating better soon they want to put her on reglan and another med to stimulate appetite. She already had a stomach emptying scan and it came back normal. I am so against reglan because I have read a lot of bad things about it. I feel helpless and sad because I do not want my baby on those meds and she over all is such a happy baby. Anyone else have similar problems? Did you use reglan?
