    I feel like i have tried everything.. nothing is helping :(

    This is more of a vent.

    Mia is still vomitting. Tried every formula, all the AR ones.. HA ones.. easy to digest ones. Tried solids.. now im trialing soy formula, but shes still vommiting. It was good yesterday (only about 20 spews, thats good for her) but today she has gone back to the same.. (average 45).

    I get test results tomorrow to see if she is LI etc but surley if she was the soy would help???? hes testing for a few other things aswell.. Not a milk allergy but then again, if she had a milk allergy, wouldnt the soy help with that too.........




    arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


    just needed to get that out, im sure u are all over my complaining about it so feel free to tell me to shutup.

    I feel your frustration... not about vomiting cos I don't get that.. but hearing them screech with pain when doing a poo isn't nice either

    Did you try the goats milk formula?

    I was just going to say try goats milk formula... Is she on Meds for the reflux?? or no cos there still testing... I have HEAPS of Zantac left here. ! opened but the other isnt opened. I got it so easily... Hope u can get hold of something that helps. Although if it is reflux nothing will realy stop the vomiting. It only really helps with the discomfort. My DS suffered bad GOR. Hope u get some answers from the BT. The solids helping at all??? Have you thought about trying the thickner with the soy milk???

    Jess - i have tried everything. Yep she was on Losec but couldnt keep it down. She hasnt been on it for about 2 months. Personally i dont think its reflux, shes not in pain, she doesnt cry when she spews. She gets abit whingy coz it doesnt stop but thats about it. She has had toast, sweet potatoe, pumkin, brocolli, avacado. She even brings the toast back up with her spews. *sigh*

    I havent tried goats yet. I need a formula that digests really easy, to get it out of her tummy before it comes back up IYKWIM. Does anyone thing Neocate would help with this?????? If not, my next step will be to try goats.

    Do you girls think its worth me taking her to melb to get her stomach and stuff checked on the inside, to see if its a developmental problem????

    Mel - are you going to try Neocate? I have noticed Mia's poo's have become abit more formed since being on the soy, which is a nice change from the yellow diahrea (sp). But i too think its heading to constipation. have you had her bowels checked? Mia had hers checked by the poo samples i think. MAyb something to look into?

    Hollye, I don't think it's what she's eating/drinking that's making her vomit like that all the time. It sounds like she could have an issue with the sphincter muscle at the top of her stomach, like it's not closing and keeping food in her stomach, hence the constant vomiting. I would be taking her to get it assessed and see if that's what the problem is because the constant changing of her formula wont be doing her gut much good to start with kwim? Like you could try every formula on the market and still have this problem

    Hollye, take her to your GP first for a referral to a paed and go from there. But at some point you would probably have to take her to Melb if you don't have specialists in your area.

    Just wanted to give big hugs Hollye. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be- and how much laundry you must do!

    Hollye, my completely non medical first though was to agree with Trillian. I'd get a referral to a good paed, or eve a paediatric gastroenterologist, and Id travel to get to see a good one.

    You could always ring up the RCH and see what they suggest as well.

    Best of luck - I hope it's as easy as just the formula.

    ive seen the peads here. The same one that told me to get over it and start her on solids months ago. I refuse to see anymore here. I told my GP this and he was shocked but said he can send me to a different on in Albury. Im sick of pis$ farting around. I have an appointment with him tomorrow at 11am so ill talk to him then. Might give the RCH a call and see what they say.

    The soy formula is making Mia throw up this thick yellowish spew.. i should take her off it right???????????????????

    shortest time i have given is a week.. and i wean her onto it slowly. Shes never been fussed with the change. Today she has drank 150 mls all day and shes throwing it up. She just wont drink it and she hasnt had any solids today (very busy day).

    Do they recommend a certain time period for the changes? I wonder it it takes a certain time for their tummies to adjust?
    I had success with goats milk formula, but it seems it answer isn't just in formula though. Hope you can get a referral for this soon, you can't go around wearing PVC 24/7.

    i asked my doc about changing her to soy after a week on Karicare HA AR and he was fine with it. I know it doesnt seem the answer, but i need her to drink something. 150mls from 7am to 7pm isnt enough. Along with the spewing. If she doesnt get something into her shes going to end up in hospital so i dont feel like i have much choice.
