My son was diagnosed with gurd at 2 months old. His doctor told me to add a tablespoon of rice cereal to his bottles. He is exclusively breastfeeding and refuses to suck a bottle. So i cup feed him with a medicine cup. Within an hour he started vomiting. I thought he might be too young to toerate the cereal so i didn't try it anymore. So now he will be 5 months old on the 20th and i guess he hit a growth spurt because he's eating like he did as a newborn and the gurd is worse. I decided to try rice cereal again only spoon feeding and i only gave him 2 teaspoon full. He did the same thing only he vomit so much it was yellow stomach acid. I thought he might be allergic to the rice and i tried the oatmeal and the exact same thing happened. I just want to know if this has happened to anyone? He has his shots in 2 weeks so i will ask the doctor then.
Did the pediatrician give you a prescription for your son?
yes hes on zantac. I was actually looking up food allergies and I found something called fpies and he has every symptom. But from what i read there is no testing for it.
Have you considered an elimination diet for yourself? I thought my son may have had Gerd as well and was getting ready to make him a dr. appt. I decided to cut out dairy first and it helped him significantly.
