A short rant

Side note: My son has reflux and when we think we have it all worked out, we don't.

I was talking to my step mom today on th phone she asked how he is doing. I explained to her what was going on and what the Dr's had said. Then she proceeded to say "Well, Ali, do you think it could be your milk? I thought maybe its just bad and you should put him on formula." I was almost speechless. Then I hear my dad in the background agreeing with her. I told her that my breast milk was the gentlest thing for his tummy and it is made specially for him. She just gave me "oh" on a snarky, whatever way.

I am just so aggravated right now... I know its not a big deal but still, people like her drive me nuts.

YOu milk is the best thing fo rhim but something you are eatting may not be, have you tried an illimination diet, sometimes reflus is cause by a dairy sensativity or a soy one. Something to think about. But even if it is something you are eating, every time you feed him, the good bacteria in the milk, helps heal the gut so it is better then formula.
