Discussions that mention reglan

Children's Health board


hi there just wanted to let you know I am still in the same boat. My son is almost 5 months and when he hit 4 months his fussing with bottles got very bad again. Drank an ounce or two and started screaming. I hate it when people think "oh hes just not hungry" cause I know he is. I don't know if it is reflux or just his personality. He started drinking 1/2 of what he was eating so I took him to the doctor again. He gave me zantac and reglan which got him eating his normal amount of formula again. He still throws his fits during feeds from time to time but now with the medicine I can usually calm him down with a pacifire and pop that bottle back in quickly. I hate feeding him :( I am always wondering if he is gonna take his bottle good this time or throw a fit and make me work to get him to drink it. Babies are suppose to enjoy feeding right? He starts getting upset as soon as he sees the bottle. I hope he outgrows this. Thank god he eats his rice cereal.
Actually my son was born a week late and I had him by c-section on the 19th. (little rascal has been stubborn from the beggining lol). Thats cool though only 6 days apart. I wanted to take him to a gastro pediatrician but my doctor says he will out grow this at 7 months. Sometimes I wonder if it really is reflux or maybe I am just not good at feeding my baby. But he does this to everyone who feeds him so it isn't in my head. I just tried to feed him and he got really cranky on me and wouldn't take it so I guess I will try again later. This is so frustrating. If I ever have any more kids I don't want to go through this again. I feel so bad giving him zantac and reglan but I am at my wits end trying to feed this boy. He is only in the 25th percentile for weight.
