After spending 3 hours in the er Sunday night for a hard belly and inconsolable crying for 24 hours our little guy was diagnosed with reflux and given Zantac. It seemed to help a little almost instantly (and I realize it can take up to a week for full effect) but his belly was still hard andbhe was farting like a grown man all day every day. We made a clench decision last night around 9 p.m. to go ahead with enfamil prosobee (sensitive tummies soy) and there has been a definite improvement in our baby. Less gassy/less screaming (so far)and less spitting up. I am trying not to count my chickens before they hatch but I am really hoping this works for him.
I guess I am just looking for some support as all of the reading I have done says it is basically impossible for babies to be lactose intolerant bit I have seen thechange in my son and, like I said, have a strong family history on both sides to prove otherwise. Thanks in advance ladies. :)
*please no bashing as I know bm is best and eliminating dairy can helpand I am doing that and still pumping to try bm later down the line when his belly is more mature. But I couldn't let my little guy suffer like that.*
