Re: Why isn't she eating?

Also, did the drs do a stool test to see if she has microscopic blood in her poop? She might be allergic to soy also.

Re: Why isn't she eating?

Yes they tested her for eeeevvvvveeerrryyyyything. lol Like, seriously I don't think there was another test they could run. She even just had the sweat test done to rule out CF for sure. Everything came back fine.

I have tried a cup, but she just chews. I have a straw cup otw and hoping she'll take to that better. We just started solids a tiny bit. I gave her some squash tonight. She was screaming at me while we were eating dinner so I figured why not. lol She was all happy and opened her mouth wide.... and the happiness ended once the squash taste set in. ha! We'll keep trying though. GI said orange/red veggies but I'm going to ask for the okay to do avacado.

I have tried dream feeding - she just wakes up p!$$ed.

She is back to eating 20oz/day now. I think she even took 21 today. I'm thinking the prilosec is working. I actually read on another forum that since zantac and prilosec are different type of meds you're suppose to continue on them both for two weeks until the latter kicks in! Wish I had known that. So it was basically like taking her off the meds for a while. I'm not getting my hopes up that she'll continue eating okay, I'm just keeping an eye on it. And if it starts up again I'll be calling her GI. We weren't suppose to go back til March since she has her 6mo well baby in February (he said to just call him w/ her stats) but we might have to find a way to get in.

Off to find that app...
