Our baby girl was born 9/19/16, and completed our family of 3 girls. Taylor was the dream baby for the first 2 weeks we came home from the hospital... sleeping 4-5 hours at night, only crying when she was hungry.. I thought we were in for an easy ride.
I was wrong.
At around 2 weeks, she began to be fussy with feeds. Taking an hour to drink 2 oz, and exhausting herself from trying so hard.
Then came the spitting up... at first a little, no big deal. It turned into full blown projectile spitting up, constant changing of clothes.. but that didn't bother me.
It was seeing her in pain that broke my heart..
Writhing from pain, being hungry but unable to eat from it burning so bad. Her pediatrician put her on Zantac. My oldest had reflux and Zantac worked for her, so I figured it would for Taylor.
It made this veteran Mama feel like a failing rookie. We changed bottles.. thickened feeds.. went to soy formula..tried Axid.. tried elemental formula.. on to Prevacid compound.
The night I found myself and my girl both crying from frustration, pain, and exhaustion was the last straw. I happened upon TummyCare Max in a haze in the middle of the night, and ordered.. it couldn't possibly get any worse for my girl!
Within 2 days, she was drinking her bottle without crying and fighting it from pain.
By day 5, she is now drinking almost 6 Oz bottles 5 times a day... from a week ago with me getting maybe 15oz in her a day.
The spitting up has all but disappeared, and when she does she doesn't shed one tear!!!
To see the difference in less than a week has given us so much hope that it is only going to get better for her from here.
I got more smiles and giggles today than I have in weeks, and to see her feeling so much better so quickly is something I will forever be grateful for!!!
