Sophie still hates food. I am positive she has a digestive issue. She looks to be in pain after eating any solids. She spits up and hiccups and she even cries. So I am sure she has some type of acid reflux issues.
Sophie finally had her 15 month appointment a little late, she just turned 16 months. The doc didn't even want to listen to us about her lack of eating. Why wasn't he concerned? She is 29 pounds and just under 34 inches, she is off the charts for her age. He said she is the size of an average 2 year old. So because she is so big, he says there is no need to worry. Wtf!! Sorry but if she isn't eating and barfing up all she eats and always in pain, there is a problem. So at my constant nagging, he made an sent a referral to Children's Hospital Oakland. So I am happy about that. So they can check her throat out and see if there are any stomach issues. Ugh! I don't know why docs around here brush off issues so much.
Jess is Sophie still on reflux meds
Sinin is Luke that too if he isn't on enough meds
He takes 3.5 ml of zantac twice a day
And 10 mg losec in morn.
It took a lot of my complaining to get losec too
but it's made a huge difference to him
S is always high on weight and height chartsSotheby ignore concerns
When his teflux is under control he has a great appetite.
Did u ever try multi vitamin
It does work increase appetite
Laura, thanks for the advice! You wouldn't believe this but the docs have always refused to give me a prescription for Sophia because of her weight and size. Its not fair because genetics is genetics and she can't help being big. She is lean by the way, not very chubby at all just heavy. They say they only want to give medicine if she shows failure to thrive. But thank God this doc actually listening after me pushing and pushing and referred us to a gastroenterologist. I always wonder if she actually ate much more because she hardly eats at all, how much heavier she would be by now. lol. Because she is already breaking my back when I pick her up. lol. I get jealous when I see how well other babies eat and my Sophie eats like a bird. . I am so happy to see that the medicine helps Simon. This gave me some hope that once she is treated her appetite will change. How is Simon doing these days? I hope you and him are feeling better. Sophie was also sick during Halloween, those darn shots gave her fevers and her poor legs. She was limping because of those needles they stuck in her thighs.
Jess & Laura sorry the babies (and you Laura) weren't feeling well on Halloween
Jess ~ Hurray for gastro specialist looking at Soph! Poor baby having to suffer all this time, good for you being persistent! How many shots did Soph have to get? I dread next Tues b/c it's P's 15 month appt and he will get 2 shots. The Dr will try to convince me to get his flu shot at the same time, but 2 shots will be tough enough for us to handle. I'll take him back in 2 weeks for his flu shot. Ughh, vaccines! And you need to use some of that persistence to get help for yourself! Maybe you should get a referral for an endocrinologist too!
Angel, Pierce looks absolutely adorable. I just want to cuddle him when I see those pics! Sophia only had like 1 shot from her 1 year shots and another one for 15 months and she is all caught up. My dh refused the flu shot, he thinks its totally unnecessary, so we didn't give it to her. I have never ever given any of my kids a flu shot, and they didn't push it in the past. So do what you think works best for Pierce. I would wait the 2 weeks though. Poor Sophie, those shots really hurt her chubby thighs. So did Pierce get a lot of treats?
Happy belated 1st birthday to Ms Lorelei!!!!!! Bethany...
Laura, Im so sorry sorry to hear about you not feeling well and that you guys had to miss out on Halloween. I really hope you guys feel better soon
Jess, sorry to hear about your LO not feeling well either. Is there nothing they can do for her? Thats pretty crappy of them to say "because of her size we cant give her these meds" and then not offer an alternative. Or maybe I missed that lol Either way grr to the dr! I hope she feels better.
Angel, P is so darn cute!!!! I LOVE his outfit!
Leslie, going to check on your journal to see how you are doing but hope you are doing well!
I must say that when I do have a LO, Im so glad I have you ladies here. You all do such an amazing job with your LO's and just wonderful mothers!
Happy Monday to everyone and hope its a good week!
G'morning ladies! I'm dreading P's shots today *sigh* I wish my DH was like Jess' and would say no flu shot, but he listens to every suggestion & recommendation my Dr makes. I know P gets his last DTap <~~important and something else today. I'll ask the Dr which 2 she recommends for today.
Hope you all are doing well...it's starting to get cold here
Angel Pierce looked so cute in his costume!! I love it! Did you get to eat all his candy? Understand how you feel about vaccines but ( my opinion I'm not trying to push it) it's much safer to get then not. I just saw an article about a child passing away after not getting a flu shot. So scary. I made DH get a flu shot this year with me. He has never gotten one!
Laura I hope you and Simon are feeling better and things are figured out health wise. Wish doctors had better, faster answers for you!
Jess hope you and the girls are doing well. Thanks for thinking of me!
Amy thinking of you as always. The time has come where your rainbow is coming to you! I agree that pointers from the ladies here will be wonderful when we do become moms.
Happy belated bday to Lorelei , Bethany! Hope all is well
Random, paranoid question...how long was it until you ladies did not have cramping while pregnant? I know it's still early and can be normal it just makes me worry sometimes. I'm still spotting on and off so I know that can be it too. Why can't things be clear cut and easy?
