So we took Aiden to the Pediatrician today. After a week of no dairy I thought the first few days were much improved. He seemed to fuss less and sleep better at night. Then he was back to his fussy ways again. I was so confused as to whether it was a dairy problem or not and if the non fussy days were just a coincidence. I’ve begun eating dairy again and there doesn’t seem to be a real significant change. After vising the doctor and discussing his fussiness and his head to toe rash her diagnoses was that we have a high needs baby with sensitive skin and acid reflux. She recommended putting him on Zantac for the reflux and trying Eucerin lotion on his skin. I’m hoping that she is on to something. It certainly could be reflux as he seems to have tummy issues. I need to find some ways to keep him more elevated all of the time too in order to help his reflux. I have to say that I am quite happy to be able to eat dairy again! You don’t realize how many foods contain dairy and milk products until you start reading labels.
I’m really hoping this works for my little guy. He does seem to have tummy troubles and passes gas when he is fussy. I’m also going to try gas drops and heard of gripe water. Has anyone ever tried gripe water?
Aiden had three shots today too and has been a sleepy guy! Tough day for the little man 🙁
And I have to say isn’t his Thank You Baby Dino Dreams crib bedding (in the pic) adorable! I just love it 🙂
