Re: Newborn has Acid Reflux - NEED HELP MAMAS!

UPDATE 7/30/07

Hannah is doing great. She has not had any reflux for 4 days now! We have even stopped the Zantac. I did not believe the Zantac was doing her any good, and I had just scheduled her a follow-up appointment with her doctor, and she started doing better!

I believe her reflux was all caused by my diet. I started keeping track of what I was eating and when she had reflux. I've eliminated several foods, but since cutting them out of my diet, she has not had any reflux!

She has a sensitivity to milk protein, pineapple, strawberries, tomatoes, chocolate (and caffeine), and any other citrus or acidic or spicy or fried foods. I have also been avoiding soy, just to play it safe (haven't had it enough to know if it is a problem food for her). It's been a challenge to figure out what things affect her, and also to figure out what I can eat without any milk products in it but it has been worth it!
We have allergies- can't buy from or trade with smoking household. Sorry!
