Sweet Ava has had a not so sweet 2 weeks of acid reflux, aka colic. Our poor little girl has endured a gassy stomach so much that we have to hold her upright in a sitting position just to prevent her painful spasms. Her suffering has lead to endless hours of crying, day and night, giving us sleepless nights as well. Poor baby. Poor us.
Doc prescribed Zantac(ranitidine) that we started this evening, including short frequent feedings, frequent burping, and holding her upright for 20 minutes after eating. We pray our sweet Ava will find her needed intestinal relief soon, and that we can get more sleep.
Question: How have you handled colic or acid reflux with your baby?
Kaitlyn and Ava are 5 weeks old today and were due this week.
