My baby was only 6lb 15oz. (3150g) born and at 5½ months is 6.1kg. Definitely not a chubby baby, but is not underweight either. He has gone through stages of putting on very little weight and then will go through a growth spurt and gain weight quickly. I know how you mums are feeling. A reflux baby is a lot of work and a lot of washing. I can't wait for the time when we notice it easing off and we don't have to give him the Zantac. It tastes that awful I have a hard time giving it to him. Unfortunately, I got a taste of it once. Yuk! He has his good days, too and his bad days. He also has chronic colic, which makes it hard to tell sometimes which is bothering him the most. If anyone can suggest how to administer the Zantac to disguise the taste or so that it doesn't get wasted down his bib I would be most appreciated. Now that he is on the bigger teat we notice it is harder to get the oral medication syringe into his mouth to squirt it in, without it dribbling back out of the gap. I have put a little milk into the syringe with the Zantac and it disguises the taste but I feel we are wasting a lot of it because at some feeds the stuff comes right back out. I don't lay him back much when I feed him. We both prefer pretty much sitting up when drinking the bottle and he goes into the highchair slightly inclined back so I have a free hand to give him the Zantac with the bottle. Any suggestions? I'm going to post a formal question too, in case it gets more response.
