Update on Lauren

Lauren had her 2 month well baby check-up yesterday. Poor baby had to get 3 shots and an oral vaccine. I had to take her and Evan by myself since dh was working. Evan was really good the whole time we were there (over 2 hours!)
Lauren weighs 10lbs 11oz now and is 22 inches long. I talked to her dr about the possibility of her having reflux, and she agreed that it sounds like it to her too. She perscribed Zantac, so we are going to try that and see if it helps. The zantac is NASTY stuff. So far Lauren has made herself gag and even projectile vomit when we try to give it to her. I tried pumping and mixing the milk and medicine in the syringe so the medicine wasn't quite as strong, and that helped last night, but this morning, it all came right back out. I am not sure she got ANY of the dose at all. She is supposed to go back in a month to see if the Zantac is helping or not.

Something I know something about! Ask about having the zantac in suspension form. They grind up pills and put them in a fruit flavored syrup like cough syrup. Works like a charm!
