In the meantime I've been researching GERD (reflux) therapies, milk allergy, milk protein intolerance, and lactose problems.and I've been thinking that there is a good chance Brayden has a milk protein intolerance on top of his reflux. With all of his symptoms it really seems like it fits.
So we had an appt with the pediatrican tonight. well the nurse practitioner. And we are definitely going to the gastroenterologists. It breaks my heart but we need to just to "make sure" we aren't missing something bigger going on that we can't see. I also discussed with her about the possibility of a milk protein intolerance and she said she was thinking along the same lines. and that the best way to test it is to use a NON milk based or soy based formula and see how he does. So that means alimentum. I asked her about good start because of the "comfort proteins" and she said that it is also a milk based formula so if that really is the problem it won't completely fix it. ugggh. we got 4 little sample cans.. which is prob about 2 -2 1/2 days worth each. We are going to try it for 2 weeks and see how he is doing. I really hope this works. It just sucks how crazy expensive it is!! I was looking at deals on amazon mom and sites like that but if i do that i can't use coupons. So i think it may be slightly cheaper for me to get it at the store with coupons.
SO ... here we go.. on another adventure... In the mean time tomorrow I have to call a few gastroenterologists to see who can get us in the fastest! WISH US LUCK! I hope we can figure this out!
JUST LOOK AT THAT FACE! :)
