My three month old daughter started having problems with vomiting, spitting up, and refusing to eat (crying hard with breastfeeding and arching her back). Originally, when the vomiting started, her doctor believed it was the stomach flu. However, her vomiting didn't stop, so then the doctor decided she was having trouble with GER and prescribed axid to help. The vomiting and spitting up has disappeared (thank goodness), but the problems with eating continue. She acts hungry and the minute I put her on the breast, she starts screaming and is inconsolable. She used to eat 8x or more a day (and both breasts). Now I am lucky if I can get her to feed off of a single breasts 4-5 X a day. Breastfeeding has turned into an ordeal and she has gotten really fussy. Has anyone had experience with a baby with GER and how long did it take for your child to improve? I want to go back to the time when breastfeeding was a wonderful bonding time between me and my baby. Help!
