The GI appointment went well today. Dr. S was extremely nice, and spent A LOT of time with us. He has taken Jonah off the Zantac but is keeping him on the Prevacid. He says that Prevacid is such a stronger medication, he doubts we're getting a whole lot extra out of Zantac. Plus, one side effect of Zantac can be headache, he says, and it's annoying because it's a three times a day drug. So anyway, for now we're taking him off it. We're also going to have to switch him to the Similac Alimentum powder to fortify the breast milk instead of the soy... just in case he's having an allergy to the milk protein... which is also found in the soy I guess? That stuff is crazy expensive. I bought two cans at Target tonight, and it cost me $50. I'm sure I can look online for coupons or on eBay for unopened jars and stuff, but tonight was just a "get by" sort of thing. Crazy though. We're also going to put a Tbsp of rice cereal in three to four ounces of milk to see if that will help things. We've only tried one bottle like this, and he screamed bloody murder the whole time, but I figure it's more of a tired thing than cereal/formula thing.
Ok, my eyes are closing, and my pump's starting to talk to me again. "Ifyoutypetheywillcome. Ifyoutypetheywillcome."
That's my cue, folks.
