The Zantac seems to be working well on the acid reflux (: Though we can still hear the reflux, it definitely seems to be lessening the burning of her esophagus (sp?).
Yesterday, she slept for more than an hour at a time at all her naps, and at first we were really worried! Then we realized that most newborns usually do sleep for more than an hour at a time!
So, I am just really thankful that the Zantac can take some of her pain away. AND, the best part is that nursing is going soooo much better now. I didn’t post this before, but nursing was starting to get really really horrible! She would just cry and scream during the whole feeding and it would take more than an hour to feed her. She kept wanting to eat because the milk soothed her tummy, but at the same time, she was hurting so bad from the relux all the time. She would projectile vomit at least once a day. To make matters worse, we were both so frustrated during nursing and I was having a lot of trouble maintaining confidence in myself.
I am happy that I stuck with breastfeeding…because now the feedings seem to be improving. I told myself that as long as nursing can get better, I could definitely deal with the colicky – ness.
So, thats an update for now. Pray that the zantac continues to ease the pain of her acid reflux. Poor baby!!!
And pray that mommy and daddy can continue to be patient as we wait for Isa to outgrow the colic.
