Well I was correct ... see not such a bad mommy after all!~ My mother intuition told me something was wrong with my little guy. He has Acid Reflux, not a HORRIBLE case, but bad enough that he has troubles sleeping. We went to the Dr on Friday ... we got a prescription for the reflux, he has had 3 doses so far, and I have noticed that his burps have become less wet. I am not saying that it is working ... just less wet. I have switched him to bottles, (cries and sobs from mommy) and am currently mixing his bottle 1/2 breast milk and 1/2 AR formula. AR formula is made just for Acid Reflux babies and has rice cereal in it so it is THICKER. I hoped to breast feed him for 6 months as I did with Tatum, but I knew that it may be stopped early ... but thought it would be because of Tatum, not because of him having "Belly issues." Oh well I hate that I can't breast feed him ... many have asked why don't I just continue to pump and mix 1/2 and 1/2 for the 6 months ... well to be FRANK ... IT HURTS ME! Makes me bleed and crack ... now when he is eating I don't even know he is there, but the pump kicks my ass ... yes I tried several different "nipple cups," they all hurt. I adjusted the speed and the suck and I put my self through the pain with Tatum ... but if this special formula is really all that special I think as soon as he can get 100% of it the better ... maybe he will sleep longer at night too?!
So if you can say a little prayer for us ... more sleep, less acid reflux, less wet burps, less gaging and spit up ... I will take anything as of now ...
PS I am kinda excited that we are making the move to formula sooner than later ... you all know this means I will get to pass him off for feedings! HAHAHA Already have somethings lined up for us to go to dinner ... now if I can just find someone to keep him for a night ... holly molly the sleep I will get!
PSS ... Hanna did not hurt us, we lost power for about 45 minutes last night, no big deal ... our yard was ankle deep in water while it was raining, but has since all drained into the HUGE river in our back yard, which by the way is the highest we have seen it since living here ... it rises and falls with the tides so it too is higher. Glad that Ike is not coming our way, and for those of you that Ike will affect ... I am sorry and I will be praying for you!
