Had a bit of a nightmare night on Saturday, Max has bad reflux, used to overfeed and then changed to stopping eating all together. After only having about 4oz in 12 hours and no wet nappies I took him to the walk in center after hours. The Dr said he looked fine and did the whole, overreacting first time parent thing but after I insisted that he do something they referred me to A&E, and after 6 hours of waiting around finally got admitted to a childrens ward where they diagnosed him with GERD. The worst thing was, by the next morning when we got the diagnoses, he'd still only had a further 4oz by that point and only 1 wet nappy and was shaking almost continuously. But yet the DR still said that he seemed fine, his soft spot wasn't sunken and he was quite happy in himself. I just don't get how a 3mth old baby can ever be fine after only 8oz in 24hrs and one wet nappy, especially as the week before he'd barely been reaching 15oz a day. Anyways, we left with a prescription for omeprazole, he's been put on 5mg every 24hrs. I've googled and it really seems like this should/might work for him, it seems to be the big gun as far as reflux meds go so i'm really hoping we can turn a corner. I was just wondering if anyone had their LO on this drug and how did it work for you? How long was your LO on it for? Any side effects or long term issues? Also, how on earth did you get it into your LO? They've just given me tablets, said to put it into 10mls of water, break open the tablet and dissolve the inside, whilst leaving the coating, then syringe 5mls of the fluid into Max. I've tried these past few days and it's so difficult. He hates the taste and spits the majority of it out, then whatever I do get into him he throws up at some point over the next ten minutes. It just feels really frustrating because this drug really could work for him, I just don't see how if I can't get it in him! Any advice would be appreciated!
